"Phillotaxis"? Does that mean higher taxes or lower taxes? 


Anyhow, it's nice to get a little activity on the Arisaema site-  not enough
discussion on this site about some really fascinating plants, most of which
are easy to grow and easy to grow from seed.

I've often wondered if the way the spathe rotates from year to year
is a function of how the phyllotaxis changes from year to year on the corm.
The bud placement rotates a certain degree value, so why not the
Then again, considering how many weird non-repeating developmental issues
seem to happen with Arisaema, who can say why an inflorescence faces the way
it does
in any given season?
Either way, it's fun to ponder.
