Re: [Aroid-l] Arum - minimum temperatures

Summer is the normal dormant time for all ten or so Arums I have in the ground here. The first ones I got many years ago were sold as 'summer bulbs'. I killed most of them by watering & fertilizing trying to get them to grow in the summer :) The foliage starts to yellow mid-June here no matter what the weather conditions are. I think this may be a response to day length like Alliums. At that point I stop watering and let them go completely dry & dormant for the summer and they always live to break dormancy and start growing with the autumn rains. Hurricane Rita woke them up a little early this year.

I'm afraid but there is no question of planting it deep enough. :-(
I don't have any garden just a balcony were all the pots are standing. Seems that I have to place them inside when the temperatures are still droping.
Strangely, most of the Arums and the Dracunculus began to grow at the end of August. They had a dormancy throughout nearly the whole summer.
I bought them all this year. I don't know how they were cared during their 'dormancy before the era of Peter'. ;-)
