  Hats Off to the Editor

Hats off to Neil and his staff of Arisaema experts, Ray Stillwell and Jim
McClements. I finally cracked open the newsletter on a return flight from
Chicago the other day and was pleased to find descriptions and
horticultural information on 20 or so species of this genus all
conveniently arranged in one little package. And there was a promise of
more in the next issue!

I am looking forward to reading more, especially about those that have a
chance of surviving in the tropics.

Thanks again for a great issue!

Don, They may all grow well in the tropics (I regurlarly force mine under metal
halide lights in a very warm and humid enclosure in winter. In bloom within a
month usually, they then need only 2 - 3 months more of my high
soil regimen before severly drying out (you can spade them out and put the root
ball in a garage - I've done this in July*) and removing the tuber when the
is bone dry and the stalk and leaves shrivel, and placing in paper sacks.
~~~~~~~~~All you gotta do then in the tropics is place that in your
refridgerator for three months and then you can plant back out in the heat and
humidity~~~~~~~~ - *again with blooms, fittingly, ready for Halloween as grown
in my light enclosure.
