    Hey everyone,

    I've recently started growing Arisaemas as a hobby. They go very well with Cyps :) . I'd like to share some photos with you:

    A. skikokianum 'Silver Centre' growing in my new Cyp bed (still under construction!); Cyp. pubescens and Dodecatheon pulchellum are visible.

    I've got a couple triphyllums and another sikokianum coming; I'll post those photos soon.

    Thanks for viewing!

    I love Dodecatheons (just discovered them last night at work) such cute little plants.
    The others are also lovely!

    I love Arisaemas....although I don't have much luck getting them to survive over the years...Aside from the usual American "Jackin the pulpit", the only one I have had long term success with is A. franchettianum...no luck at all with sikokianum...Take care, Eric

    Thanks everyone! Eric, I have found that sikokianum likes a humusy soil with lots of gravel, perlite, and sand. I grow all my Arisaemas (except triphyllum) in pots sunk in the ground, and store them indoors over the winter (most are pretty tender here). Your area is probably warm enough for pretty much all of the temperate species though. Hope that helps.

    I leave mine in the ground...NYC is pretty solidly in Z.7...minimum 0 deg (F), but it gets that low maybe once a decade...well, now with global warming, it may not drop that low for many decades....Take care, Eric
