Jim, what can you tell me about Arisaema yunnanense aridum?  In spring 2009, I germinated Ariseama yunnanense, seedlings stayed in the seed flat all summer long, each seedling had one small leaf held flat against the soil, then I planted them out in the fall.  I understand this species likes sun and dryness, certainly a variety named 'aridum" further implies dry conditions, but I know very little else about the species.
