  Cultural needs of Arum Purpureospathum
From: John Ludwig <aroidgrower at gmail.com> on 2009.08.23 at 10:14:52(19824)
This is my first year growing Arum Purpureospathum here in Zone 6 in northeastern pa. Can anyone give me advice on how to grow this species?

Peter Boyce can probably tell you far more about it than I can. I have not
grown this species, but I grow many others. All but A. hygrophilum (and this
recipe does work for hygrophilum, but it would prefer to be wetter) like
well drained soil, nearly drying out between watering in the winter, and dry
in the summer dormancy. The soil recipe I use is peat/sand/pumice (AKA
grit), with good well rotted compost mixed in.

I hope this helps,
