  Monoecious or dioecious?

Are aroids monoecious or dioecious?

Dear Celeste,

Most aroids are monoecious, but some species of Arisaema are dioecious
or paradioecious, i.e., they can have separate sex (it usually depends on
the size or age of plants) or change back and forth (and even turns into
monoecious plants). Weird plants, indeed.

Very best wishes,

Thank you for your reply! The information about the physiology of aroids is
kind of lacking.
