  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
two.

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!!!!

Dear David and all,

I have grown Arum hygrophilum (note spelling?) in the Kansas City metro area for upwards of 10 years. This is a Zone 5/6 location with extended droughts and low rainfall. Although we have already had a couple nights of 15 F the foliage remains undamaged. Colder nights are expected and some more foliage damages, too. It recovers in spring and blooms regularly. In short reliable and hardy here.

This spring I planted some tubers of Arum creticum after years of thinking they were too tender. I saw a single plant in bloom in a garden just north of Wichta, KS and was inspired. So far the foliage is just emerging and remains undamaged. Fingers firmly crossed.

I have a plant labelled rupicola which survives here, but I have doubts to ID and must compare to Peter Boyces book one of these bloom seasons.

Hope this helps. Jim W.

James,

Thanks for your email. Attached was sent out to a very few people in the Fort Worth area. I am in my missionary mode and trying to get converts to Arum and aroids in general.

Speaking of James Waddick and I must speak of our other mutual love, Lycoris. This was not a good year for Lycoris radiata in that there were only 20 or so blooms in my front yard, last year there were over 500. My biggest disappointment, however, is Lycoris albiflora and Lycoris aurea, neither of which bloomed this year, their second year in my Lycoris garden. Now the foliage is all up like nothing happened and that is true, nothing did. I didn't expect flowers from the Spring foliage
Lycoris or from new acquisitions, but those two better get with it or they are going to get thrown out in a couple of years. :)

David,

Interesting that you should comment on the Lycoris. Mine barely bloomed this year as well. Do you think it is because of the drought?

Warren,

I have no idea. I have maybe 9 - 10 species now. Can't wait to see them bloom.

Wayne,

Did I send you my report on the Arum I am trying to grow in Fort Worth?

Hello,

I let myself to make small changes, just to let people outside Texas know where Fort Worth is and that Typhonium sp. (the original picture) is not Arum.

Best Regards,

Marek

Thank you Marek,

As I mentioned earlier, the original was not intended for wide distribution, but has accomplished its purpose. I have now been invited to make a presentation on Aroids to a fairly large and esteemed group here in Fort Worth. So the original is now being converted to a Powerpoint presentation with an extensive prologue describing Aroids.

Having my missionary cape on, I am now seeking other groups to which I can make this presentation. Hopefully, before I am through, I will have made a convert or two to our denomination (e.g.
Aroids).

Regards,

David Leedy
