  Dear Benoit,

  This may prove a difficult aroid to find information on cultivation, but perhaps these suggestions may help, I have no personal experience w/ this genus.    All are taken from the literature, mainly from Deni Bown`s excellent book on aroids.
  Eminium is found in extreme growing mainly desert conditions, from Turkey through the Middle East to south central Asia.   It consists of 8 species.   One species flowers in April (the bloom is said to smell like rotting dogs!!!), and I would try cultivating it the same as the genus Biarum with which it shares the same kind of growing conditions and range.  I`d try growing it in pots of equal parts loam, grit or sharp sand, and leafmould.   It will begin growth in the wet, cool/cold winter months, and the pot should be kept warm and dry in the summer dormant period.   I`d start putting a LITTLE water in fall, and increase the water when it begins producing leaves, and add fertilizer.
  I hope this information may assist you, please share your experiences with growing this seemingly rare (in cultivation) genus.

  Julius Boos.
