Re: Arisaema Fimbriata dry tuber storage?

John, here's what I've done (on the Gulf Coast).

I had terrible luck with fimbriatum, sukotaiense and barnesii in pots along 
with all of my other Arisaemas, so what didn't rot got planted in the 
ground. Although these are tropical, they are also deciduous and seemed to 
follow seasonal changes here.  The summer of 2007 they looked awful in pots 
so last fall they went into the ground for the winter in a light, sandy, 
composty soil.  At that point, barnesii was gone and I didn't have much to 
loose with the other two.  This past spring they sprouted with renewed vigor 
and strength, and I'm hoping for flowers next spring.  October turns cooler 
especially at night, and it also stops raining and becomes very dry (for 
us).  If these tropical Arisaemas are still up, this finishes them off.

So my vote would be winter storage in slightly moist soil.  Since these 
plants don't come with many cultural instructions I'll be eager to hear how 
others are growing them.
