                            Hello all!

Just a quick post to introduce myself to the august Arisæma company 
 I live
in South Australia, a warm Mediterranean climate [zone 9]. On a dry,
north-facing block, I don’t have much shade. Some years ago I purchased – at
hideous expense – a tuber of Arisæma sikkokianum, which has flowered
annually ever since, to my great gratification and the amazement of the
lucky few who have been privileged to see it. It has not increased at all. A
few months ago – autumn, here – I purchased seed of a few other species and
planted it immediately: germination was good. Now, in the middle of our
winter, very few of these are still above ground, but I think that some tiny
tubers have entered dormancy and still survive: I wonder if the few that
have not entered dormancy will keep growing until the summer heat stops
them? We shall see 

   I have a few other aroids: Arum palæstinum, A. italicum, and Arisarum
vulgare are [almost] weeds, and I have a few Zantedeschia species and
hybrids, as well as Dracunculus vulgaris.

   All the best to all,
