Solved planting depth for A. henryi--thanks!
From: "Celeste Whitlow" politicalamazon at charter.net> on 2002.03.10 at 00:50:21(8266)|
Just to let everyone know, I was able to find documentation on planting
depth for the A. henryi.
Has anyone on this list successfully grown this species? Any tips?

This sp. is a very slow germinator . I have got seed 2 years running now
from plants grown from seed ex. Wilbert in '96 . Seed was collected late Dec
in 2000 , sown mid Jan '01 , and no sign of sprouts until Sept.
This year I left most fruit on the plant , just to see how long it would
last . It held on for over 6 weeks !
Amd many berries were still firm when the stem collapsed . These seeds have
been sown and I have yet to se any sprout .

I can vouch for this as well!! Michael sent me some of the seed from his
A. henryi early last year, planted in around March I think...... didn't
germinate until Sept-October (Got 3 from 6). Have their third leaves now
and I am still unsure whether to repot them or not. Don't want to disturb

Quite a few Arisaema sprout roots and do not develop shoots until the
Perhaps A. henryi is intermediate between these groups. That would|
account for the
seemingly very long germination time.
Try germinating a few seed in a plastic bag on a damp paper towel scrap,
I bet you observe the root radicle in a relatively short time. And when
planted, it will
probably take a long time for the shoot to appear.
