  Arum Orientale
From: Baumfarn Webmaster webmaster at baumfarn.at> on 2005.03.13 at 05:25:16(12788)
I got seeds of Arum Orientale. I presoaked them for one day (24h) in
water and then put them in an earth-perlit-sand mixture (14.Feb., 2005).
Temperature warm (22?C-27?C), medium light, in a miniature greeenhouse
which give them high humidity rates. Occasionally morning sun.
Was this so far correct? How long will they take to sprout?

Hi Peter,

In the southern hemisphere I sow them in late summer / early
autumn and leave them exposed to natural rainfall under shadeclothe.
They germinate late autumn winter . We get a dozen or so frosts
per winter with maximum cold -2C.

I also add some dolomite to the mixture.

I suspect you are keeping them a bit too warm.
