Even with all my weird and fussy plants around this one still impresses me every time I see one in flower!

Poor thing is looking a bit sorry for itself now.

Looking forward to some nice healthy leaves this year :shock:

Decide to recycle this old post- :lol:

Am a bit concerned as my bulbs have still not sent up a leaf yet. They have been in soil for 2 months now. I recently checked them and they have not rotted and have a very small shoot which has yet to break the soil. Is it not quite late or do they normally shoot this late in the spring.

I have some Dracunculus vulgaris happily growing in the garden, about 16 inches- maybe they are just early growers :roll:

Hi Andrew

I wouldn't worry too much. My big, mature plant has just shown itself above the soil and has been standing outside all winter. Maybe the colder than average winter this year has knocked them back somewhat?

While my Arisaema sikkokianum is flowering away at the moment, the A. costatum have only just appeared above the soil and for the third year running the A. yunnanense hasn't flowered at all.



Cheers
Andy

Hi

I've got the same plant like you for many years. But I think the real name is not Sauromatum guttatum or venosum.
The real name is Typhonium venosum.
And when the plant flowering she doesn'n need erth or water.

All of my stems have now drooped and looking pretty messy. Would now be a good life to lift the bulbs out and store over winter or should I wait a bit longer?
