Thank you Sheldon and Geoffrey.
I know so little about aroids; I didn't know they rest late June!
I'll unpot them after acquiring a bigger pot and some less fertile soil. Maybe I will go back and take some from the parking lot! Just in case mine is too rich.

This is a webpage my husband made for me to tell about the first aroid I found in the parking lot. It was sweet of him but he forgot that there was a huge step between picking the berries and planting them---I did keep them in water until the outer bit rotted and I carefully washed the seeds free of the rotted stuff so I wouldn't be burned by it. Notice how full of leaves the aroid is! Wasn't it lovely?
Actually, all of the seeds I raised in the pot died, and the three that did grow grew about 10 feet away on the far side of the lavender island! I only found them this spring. What a surprise!
I hope to help the one I rescued and the three little ones to be just as happy. Thank you.
