Hi Judy;

Since true Arum pictum flowers in September, anything with seed now is probably mis-identified, probably just A. italicum.

Subject: [pbs] Arum pictum Set Seeds

According to the information scribbled on the label I acquired my Arum
pictum from Telos in September 2005. It lives in a pot plunged in a sand
bed / bench in the greenhouse. It has flowered but I thought it was not
self-fertile. Lo and behold, this year it set seed. Today when I
inadvertently brushed against the seed head some separated and fell off.

I took all of them off. Rubbed orange-red pulp off, then rolled back and
forth on paper towels to clean the last residue away. Sowed all the seed
in a plastic cherry tomato container - has a perforated hinged lid,
perforated container. Spray watered, closed lid. Set under bench.

Any comments, suggestions, recommendations?

Casa Blanca well up, Stargazer much slower about it
