Re: Arisaema

You may de-pulp the seeds in a bowl of water WHILE WEARING RUBBER GLOVES.
(The juice can be very irritating). After a few rinses over a day or so the
bare seeds can be rolled up in a moist paper towel or placed directly on
top (do not bury) of some moist, sterilized, soil mix in a cool shady
place. The paper towel seeds can be checked every few days. This works best
for me and within a week or two a root can be seen coming out of several
seeds. At this point I place them on top of soil mix, and when a leaf pops
out, under flourescent lights for 2-3 months. Then they are dried out and
get their first 3 month chilling. No rest is needed from the seed stage.
This is basically a proceedure I have gotten from literature available to
all AEGers (Arisaema Enthusiasts Group) and by communication with others.

Subject:  Arisaema

Hello all,
I am new to the list (and to Aroids), and I am interested in genera
characterized by succulence and tubers.
I am just back from a trip to Yemen where I found an Arisaema that I wasn't
able to classify, on the top of Jebel Sumarah, but had already shed its
leaves (no rests). The inflorescence stalk was about 30 cm or a little
bearing some 100 orange-red fruits. In the literature I found that species
growing in Yemen are A. flavum, A. bottae, A. enneaphyllum and A.
pentaphyllum (maybe some are synonyms.. I am new to this genus). Can
give me some hints for the identification and tell me if seeds need any
special treatment for germination (I read that Arisaemas need some
refrigeration, but don't know if all the species need this).
I have some surplus seeds for exchange, if anybody is interested can e-mail
me privately.

Thanks, and happy holidays
