Your information about cyclamen was recorded accurately and 
accurately posted to the pbs list.

Paul Christian recommended the same treatment for both arisaema and

tubers produce considerable slimey exudate, hence the recommendation 
that one wash the wound with alcohol before packing it with sulfur.
