I accidentally left my main plant of my (marginally hardy) Arisaema sikkokianum out over this last winter, oops. Luckily I had a small offset in the greenhouse, which has just flowered with the tiniest, miniature Arisaema flower you have ever seen only about 10 cm high.

Hi Stephen,

lovely contrast of white and blackish-purple. :smile: Maybe I should consider growing some Arisaema, too. :-)



Regards

Andreas

That's a lovely dark coloured form. Mine often flower from very small bulbs, producing equally small flowers.

A. sikokianum is a species which doesn`t produce offsets ! So it`s only possible to multiply it through seeds.

Probably can spare seedlings/ FS tubers

I expect it`s rather a first flowering seedling then an offset !

Here is small part of my Araceae collection, also a pict of a man mad hybrid of A. sik. and a F2 hybrid

I tried on of these this year, they are really nice plants.
I bought it in April, flowered it in May and it rotted in the pot in July!!
