In their book "The Genus Arisaema" and writing about section 
Franchetiana the Gusmans note that "The eophyll is a simple blade and 
further, leaves remain simple for many years, first developing some kind 
of lobes, often just outlined, eventually becoming fully separated as 
the tuber matures." They also note that the leaflets of A. franchetianum 
(they are referring to mature plants) "are completely separated while 
those of A. fargesii are often only tripartite, divided only in the 
upper part." So Brian, since your plants display such a variation in 
leaf form, are the tubers in your colony of A. fargesii of varying ages?
