  mystery arisaema.

I have a rather unique situation that has come up and I need a little
advice. I found what looked to be a gigantic Jack in the Pulpit on a
little piece of property that a gardener used to own, but at the time I
found this plant (in August with only a large seed pod group) there were
no leaves left, something had either eaten them or they had been lopped off
somehow. So I am not sure it is a Jack like we have here in Indiana. The
unusual thing is that there were three BRANCHED prongs sticking out, not
three single. The stalk was bigger than a usual Jack, perhaps about four
feet high and thicker. I have just now harvested the seed and side by side
with regular Arisaema triphyllum, they are bigger seeds but identical in
every other respect. I usually take seed and sow it in my yard for fun,
but these I want to germinate in controlled conditions, just in case it is
something special. Do I:
set the seed in the fridge, and then germinate?
Do they germinate immediately, with no cold requirement?
I appreciate your help.

I just received a gift of a green dragon (A. dracontium) which is a giant (
42" tall an d stout) and has "branched prongs".
