Arisaema sizemoreae

Section Fimbriata.

Described in 2003, Arisaema sizemoreae is a deciduous tropical species from Thailand with a single glossy trifoliate leaf and a spadix ending in a cluster of fimbriate bristles. It is an exceptionally beautiful plant.

The spathe tube is cylindrical with a wide yellowish-green mouth. Plants reach around 40cm tall.

Tuber:

Tubers are subglobose and reach around 6cm in diameter. Offsets are produced relatively sparingly from the adult tuber on mature plants.

Seeds and germination:

Seeds can be stored dry with no significant loss of viability. Germination has been relatively good here, but has taken longer than many species. Around 8 – 12 weeks has been typical.
