[Arisaema-l] facing arisaema?

Henry: I have a large A. maximowiczii growing along a path right in front of
a Japanese native azalea. It came up this year with the spathe facing right
into the azalea and it was next to impossible to see. I dug a big bunch of
dirt around the tuber, turned it 180 degrees, watered it and it is fine. If
it doesn't "stay turned" next year, I will turn it again. I did that last
year to a sikokianum and it came up better this time. If it were purely a
function of how much light is on one side of a plant vs. the other, why
would inflorescenses on plants side by side not all face the same way- they
do not for me.

When you turn them, do they stay "turned" the next season?
