  Arisaema
From: Duncan McAlpine <mcalpin at eskimo.com> on 1996.12.28 at 17:54:08(20)
For you hungry Arisaema collectors, Heronswood Nursery has released the
following 1997 species:

Arisaema aff. griffithii HWJCM 147
A. amurense
A. angustatum var.penin f. varieg DJH 171
A. angustatum Var. Peninsulae DJH 192
A. consanguineum
A. draconitium
A. erubescens
A. flavum
A. franchetianum
A. heterophyllum
A. jacquemontii
A. nepenthoides
A. ringens BSWJ 1522
A. sazensoo
A. speciosum
A. taiwanensis - grey leaf
A. taiwanensis BSWJ 1879
A tortuosum - blackstem form
A. tortuosum HWJCM 561
A. triphyllum
A. aff. verrucosum HWJCM 161

Well that is it and my check book is going to be a little bit emptier
this year.. Donít tell my wife... I have noticed that GardenNet has
Heronswood on their homepage catalog listing for downloading. For some
reason it will not work for me and I assume I have all the correct
plugins and gizmoís. I hate when a Nursery payís money to a service a=
nd
it does not work for a customer. If Dan has the time, I will teach him
how to do this or one of his staff to put his catalog on the internet.

Heronswood address is located at GardenNet or on my main homepage. THe
catalog is $4.00 USD and is worth every penny. IT IS THICK and full of
plants.

Jim Archibald's new (January 97) catalogue arrived today. It includes a number
of Arisaema, some of interest. Two from Needham collections (consanguineum
from EN2459 Yunnan and exappendiculatum EN ? green form from Nepal). Most
interesting to me is A. yamatense var sugimotoi from Honshu, collected by
Don Elick 1996. The latter costs $9 for 8 seeds.
He can be contacted at Bryn Collen, Ffostrasol, Llandysul, Dyfed, SA44 5SB.
If you have not come across it before, that really is how the words are
spelt: It's just Welsh!

Regards,
David Victor

Hi there UK Arisaema lovers.
I just received Crug Nursery's new catalogue and it contains a wealth of
Arisaema. In total, it contains some 45 entries, including a wide range of
Bleddyn's own collections from Korea/Taiwan. In addition, it includes a
number of Japanese entries which he is importing.
The downside is that he does not do mail order under any circumstances, so
you must travel to the Menai Straits to get the plants.
Sorry to you guys elsewhere in the world, but many nurseries here are not
keen on the cost and difficulty in handling mail order.
Regards,
David Victor

Question..... Why would someone put out a catalog if they did not intend
to use it as mail order? I'm not trying to be funny... just wanted to
know.

Olivers in Connecticut puts out a catalogue and they do not do mailorder
either. When I read their catalogue I make plans to get to their nursery
to buy the plants in which I am interested.

Sorry Dewey, can't help you. However, don't forget that any enthusiast in
the UK can travel the length and breadth in a day or so, and many do so.
For this nursery's plants, I would be willing to travel far and wide. There
are so many new plants from so many interesting places that they have
collected, its mind blowing.

David Victor

The IAS has received a request and I trust that some of our participants
can help... Mr Erich Pohle, Otto Hurrass Strasse 25, D-01979, Lauchhammer
- Mitte, Germany is looking to purchase 2 to 8 tubers of Arisaema elephas.
Is this a good name? Would someone contact him and see if they can help?
I would appreciate it if you would cc to me. I will forward any
information to Mr. Pohle that is pertinent. Unfortunately, he does not
list an e-mail address.
Thank you,
Dewey

Hello all,
I am new to the list (and to Aroids), and I am interested in genera
characterized by succulence and tubers.
I am just back from a trip to Yemen where I found an Arisaema that I wasn't
able to classify, on the top of Jebel Sumarah, but had already shed its
leaves (no rests). The inflorescence stalk was about 30 cm or a little more,
bearing some 100 orange-red fruits. In the literature I found that species
growing in Yemen are A. flavum, A. bottae, A. enneaphyllum and A.
pentaphyllum (maybe some are synonyms.. I am new to this genus). Can anybody
give me some hints for the identification and tell me if seeds need any
special treatment for germination (I read that Arisaemas need some
refrigeration, but don't know if all the species need this).
I have some surplus seeds for exchange, if anybody is interested can e-mail
me privately.

Giuseppe,

Everything you ever wante to know about Arisaema but were afraid to ask
is available
to members of AEG, Arisaema Enthusiasts Group. E-mail me privately to get
the
requirements for membership.

Giuseppe,
You may de-pulp the seeds in a bowl of water WHILE WEARING RUBBER GLOVES.
(The juice can be very irritating). After a few rinses over a day or so the
bare seeds can be rolled up in a moist paper towel or placed directly on
top (do not bury) of some moist, sterilized, soil mix in a cool shady
place. The paper towel seeds can be checked every few days. This works best
for me and within a week or two a root can be seen coming out of several
seeds. At this point I place them on top of soil mix, and when a leaf pops
out, under flourescent lights for 2-3 months. Then they are dried out and
get their first 3 month chilling. No rest is needed from the seed stage.
This is basically a proceedure I have gotten from literature available to
all AEGers (Arisaema Enthusiasts Group) and by communication with others.

I was wondering if anyone has tried growing Arisaemas in South Florida. If you have, what was the result. Ive noticed some plants that are listed to max at zone 9 do fine here in Miami. I just figured I would ask before i experimented. Thanks in advance,
Paul Marcellini

Paul Arisema greow wild in SW Fl. and in Charlotte County in particular. They are found in somewhat boggy areas but seem notorius for dying when transplanted as well with carniverous species. J

Paul-

I have tried arisema in S. FLorida and they have all rotted and died on me.

I dont think it was the heat... but more my soil mix.... I have moved to a mix for all plants that is extrememly loose and dry using 30-50% pumice which hold virtually no water.

I would recomm. that if you try growing arisema in S. Flordia that you overwinter them in your refrigerator.... This way they will have the benefit of a "cold" winter.

how about trying tropical species?

I thought that many, if not most, of the tropical species were in
reality higher altitude plants that while seldom frozen, weren't
subjected to extremely high heat either. But then again, I could be
very wrong.

They ( A. triphyllum) grow wild
in S.E. Florida in bogs very near to and on the W. 'bank' of the intercoastal
at Hobe Sound, which is just N. of Jupiter. The ones I examined
had LARGE tubers. Many Peltandra also!!

Hong Kong is hardly a high altitude place yet several Arisaema species
grow there.
One is marginally hardy in North Carolina.

Would be interesting to see if they could survive further north; or if they
can do well with a shortened dormancy. Do they differ florally from typical
triph's?
Any luck with going back and finding dormant tubers in winter to
transplant?
