  Arisaema Seeds
From: "Frank & Lara" larafrank at wolpert1.freeserve.co.uk> on 2002.08.26 at 04:35:23(9288)
I have an Arisaema which has set seed this season. As I have only 1 plant of
this species would I be correct in assuming the seeds are hybrid? Or are Ariseamas able to pollinate themselves?

Thanks

Frank,

It depends on the species. Most Arisaema are either neuter, male, or female,
but A. flavum, for example, carries both male and female flowers and
will produce seeds all by itself (see my comments in the latest news letter).
