Merry Christmas from Arisaema sikkokianum

It wasn't until mid-December that the fruit of my most spectacular jack-in-the-pulpit morphed into this beautiful red color. After Christmas I will scatter some of the fruit as is into the garden. I will clean the pulp off of other pips and 'stratify' them in pots and stick them in my minimally-heated garage. I expect to see germination next year. Maybe I'll consult my reference 'library' for more info . . .

Don't forget: feel free to e-mail me at if you have anything you want to post onto this site, or if you have ideas for content.
