  Re: [Aroid-l] Arum - minimum temperatures

Summer is the normal dormant time for all ten or so Arums I have in the
ground here. The first ones I got many years ago were sold as 'summer
bulbs'. I killed most of them by watering & fertilizing trying to get them
to grow in the summer :) The foliage starts to yellow mid-June here no
matter what the weather conditions are. I think this may be a response to
day length like Alliums. At that point I stop watering and let them go
completely dry & dormant for the summer and they always live to break
dormancy and start growing with the autumn rains. Hurricane Rita woke them
up a little early this year.
