Arisaema speciosum

meanie

By Meanie


Arisaema speciosum (arisaema speciosum)

The spathe and spadix are a little deformed, which could be as a result of the recent warm weather with this being one of the early bloomers maybe.........

Good morning meanie!!!

that is a fascinating plant, i do like these type of unusual things.

I'm rather hooked on them Sticki!! Got two more Arisaema to come, plus a pot of Amorphophallus tubers too.

I think they are strangely beautiful...and even though ecconomic with colour they use it so well. Then there is the shape and form...Brilliant plants.

Couldn't have put it any better myself Pimpernel!!

Yes I like that too, strangely beautiful, I'm not sure which bit is called which but does the trumpet/cone shaped bit emerge first?

29 May, 2012

 

Mine is the small one, A.albispathus.................

I'll post a photo for you..............

I'm hooked on them also - have 2 native species, a couple of A. ringens and, because of this photo, just ordered an A. speciosum and an A. fargesi (I think I spelled that wrong). You can't have just one.....and they really are impressive & get quite a bit of attention when people come to visit.

Plus I have an empty spot. Gotta fill up that empty spot! (that's how I'm justifying this completely unnecessary purchase)

do they stay in the shade meanie?

29 May, 2012

 

Lauram - there are loads more that I'm after!

Very light shade Sticki.

ok, thank you

Meanie - look at the Plant Delights website - they have a fabulous selection of Arisaema & it was the only online nursery to have A. speciosum in stock. I'd like to have at least one of each of the Asian species!

Lauram - this is one of the best in the UK..............

thank goodness they don't ship to the US because I'd have a shopping cart full of plants - they have A. griffithii, a plant I've wanted since you (I think) posted a photo, but I've been unable to find it for sale. If a nursery offers it it's always out of stock. One online vendor suggested that buyers pre-order for spring 2013! Sadly, there's not a snowball's chance in hell of finding this sort of plant for sale in a GC in western GA.....they are very conservative plant buyers here!

ah well, there's always next year.

Laura...It is always dangerous clicking a link from Meanie, you start getting ideas. ;)

I set out to corrupt Pimpernel!

30 May, 2012

 

at least its honest corruption!!!

30 May, 2012

 

Lovely play on words Sticki!

:-)

I lead myself into temptation very well on my own & now I have all of you helping me along!

30 May, 2012

 

That's what we're here for!

are these hard to grow from seed? I found some A. flavum seeds on eBay, only a few bucks, thought I might try them if they weren't too tricky.

31 May, 2012

 

I've never tried from seed, but have some coming............

31 May, 2012

 

I should get mine in several days. They were inexpensive so I won't be losing much if they don't do well.

31 May, 2012

 

Very nice!

Cheers Delonix!

Meanie:

I wish I could take such clear photos like you! You must have a secret or a million dollar camera. lol!

3 Jun, 2012

 

As I've said before, I bin a lot!

3 Jun, 2012

 

Well, you always post the best! :>)

4 Jun, 2012

 

just got my A. flavum seeds today. Any tips on starting them, anybody?

6 Jun, 2012

 

I gave mine a soak for 24hrs as Amy instructed..............

6 Jun, 2012

 

Plant Delights Nursery called today with bad news. There is a shortage of A. speciosum and so I will not be getting one! : ((((( They'll be out until next spring! I told them to surprise me and substitute another species. The fargesei is still coming. will be interesting to see what I get!!!!!

6 Jun, 2012

 

That's a shame, but kinda exciting too at the same time!
