Currently on the Arisaema List there is discussion of multiple shoots(?)
from one seed. I had a A.konjac seed germinate in January. In February
up came a second shoot and now there is a third one coming. Any
comments?

MJ,

I have germinated only a few Amorphophallus seeds and never observed
this. But, it is very common omong the young tubers I have. I have
observed this on several species including A. titanum last year.

Dear Mary jane,

Multiple leaves in phalloid seedlings is indeed not a rarity. Even young
plants after their first dormancy may still do this but usually this
behaviour subsides when the plants get bigger. Notable exceptions are
the species from the paeoniifolius alliance. These sometimes produce two
leaves when mature and then get VERY big! I think also bulbifer may do it
when mature.

Just a question to try to understand the problem.
Where do the seeds come from? Did you collect them on your plants. Were
they sent by post?

Hi Guj,

The seed came from a privat person in Japan.Had most likely been stored d=
ry
for a longer period.Those wich germinated immediatly were A.ringens with =
a
single leaf,A.serratum and kishidae,both with tripartite leafs.Those wich
have made bulbs but not emmerged above the soil,where A.serratum
v.amplissimum and yamatense.Dont know but they majbe need an ather period
of cold treatment.Will try with the first one.You will get information ho=
w
it goes.
Only one of the A.franchetianum has formed a second leaf.Found that it ha=
d
formed a lanciolate leaf qwite different the others broad obovate.That
migth bee the reason for it to make two leafs,to bee able to store enough
food for the tuber.
Happy Eastern.
