  Re: [Aroid-l] Pinellia from seeds

Re: [Aroid-l] Pinellia from seeds I can only speak to the habits of Pinellia pedatisecta, which is on the verge of taking over parts of my garden.  Even up here is southern Wisconsin, it has no problem with simply scattering its own seeds which readily germinate the next spring with absolutely no help from me.  And I swear that the germination rate must be in the high 90’s from the amount of seedlings I end up with.  The leaves are attractive, but the inflorescence and infructescence are pretty unremarkable.

This would suggest that at least for this species, the removal of the flesh berry (not very large, I might add) is not necessary for future germination.

My Pinellias have been dropping seeds all over for many weeks.=A0 If I collect it is it important to plant it while they're still surrounded by the fleshy berry or can I wait until I've collected for a few weeks even though most of them will have dried by then?
