My seedlings from last year's seed exchange started growing around the last
of Jan or first of Feb of this year. They are still in the same pots that I
seeded them in last year( crowded this growth season). My question....some
are going dormant now. I am afraid some were affected by an infestation of
aphids before I caught it in the greenhouse. What should I do with the
pots? I have moved the flat outside in the last week. Should I repot the
dormant or growing ones? Put them in a special cold frame to grow? Some
advice to what step has worked in the past from the experienced growers
would be greatly appreciated. I don't want to lose them now.

Dewey and all,
You mean you don't read minds??? Sorry!! was running out to work and
thought about the message later......They are all arisaema(except one arum
that is looking fine)seedlings. This will be their second year and most
have been growing for around 2 months. Now, advice please to repot ,etc.
Thanks for the patience.

Sorry for the interruption.... but, I can't grow Arisaema in warm, sunny
(right now it is raining....) South Florida.... So, I can't offer any

There are Arisaema species native to Florida. I don't know much about them or
which species or where they are located, although I would be curious to find
out. I have two species growing quite well in my shaded patio area--in Miami.
One of them is labelled A. dracontia; the other is not labelled. I would like
to find out what the unlabelled species is. Perhaps I could post a photo on my
website as soon as I can borrow the digital camera from work (it just flowered,
so it should be easy to ID by someone who knows this group of plants). They are
both beautiful plants and I really enjoy them. Are you keeping yours shaded?

Oh Dewey, go ahead. You can tell him the basics of seeds and I bet you can
even give suggestion about how to handle that northern stuff. Give it a try
because I know you have super experience in seed growing.

I'm sure that you have seen the Bumper Sticker here in S. Fla. that
reads.... "So Many Species, So Little Time".... Well, I have just finished
repotting the Amorph. Collection. Used over 200 cu. ft. of potting
media... All hand mixed.... Now, to start on the 200 species of Anth.,
150 species of Philo. and a hundred or so other species... It now takes
two of us to maintain the collection and one of us in 90 years young and
the other feels over 100.... So, just too many species.... Can't grow
them all....

The Arisaema you have labeled is actually A. dracontium, one of the three
species native to
