  Arum italicum
From: Tony Avent <tony at plantdel.com> on 1997.12.03 at 17:15:48(1697)
On the issue for forcing arums into growth, several years ago, I
purchased dormant stored Arum italicum tubers. Upon planting, they refused
to sprout until 1 year had passed. These had been stored dry in a warehouse
at 50F Night/70F day temps. When I planted them in late winter, nothing
happened until the following fall.

I would like to try again, but would prefer if they would actually
sprout when planted...now. Should I give them a cold treatment or what. As
they aren't daffodils, little research seems to exist.
