  Arum hygrophilum
From: Krzysztof Kozminski <kk at netgate.net> on 1997.12.07 at 09:08:02(1719)
I've just became a happy owner of Arum hygrophilum and am wondering about
its requirements. Should it be treated as other arums, with moist
winter/spring and dry summer/fall? Any advice will be appreciated...

Dear CJ, Danny et al;
Been meaning to reply and here's my 2 cents.
Contrary to my expectations a couple tubers from CJ (thanks
again) last year have come though winter. They came up early, got
beat up by freezes and now are resprouting new foliage. Too early to
give precise details, but I look forward to their success. Made it
through lows around -2 F.

We had some record drought last summer and they surely did
not get nearly the water they would have preferred. I doubt it will
reach the dimensions cj mentions in his much milder climate, too. I
don't expect to see bloom , if any this year, for another month or

Hi Danny,

The ecology and pollination of Arum hygrophilum has been studied by Jacob
Koach in Israel. Apparently it's not a strongly smelling species and not
thermogenic. It has a long flowering cyle (9-10 days) and it's pollinated
by midges (Psychodidae) but interestingly only by males and not females as
for lords-and-ladies!!!!
