next time remove all potting soil from the "bulb" when you plant the in garden as the potting soil dries out differently than the native soil and can either be too wet or too dry relative to the native soil. best is to plant out in late summer- fall- winter when dormant and no roots.
i just put them in an area rich with leafmold.

if you walk the woods and see orange spots on the local jacks then rust is present. 
the local jacks are tolerant of the rust but the exotic jacks are not tolerant of rust and it can wipe out an Arisaema collection.

 you got rust in
