Details
Arisaema triphyllum, Jack in the Pulpit is also known as Indian Turnip. This is a Spring woodland wildflower, it is a perennial which can reach 65 cm in height. It is common in woodlands throughout eastern North America. The flowers appear through the Spring and into the Summer. They are irregular in shape and are up to 8 cm long. The outside of the spathe is usually green or purple and the inside is usually striped purple and greenish white, though considerable color variations exist. Flowering plants initially produce only male flowers, but become hermaphroditic as they further age. Most plants in a colony will become dormant by mid-Summer, but the mature, hermaphroditic flowering plant will produce a cluster of red berries in mid to late Summer which becomes visible as the spathe withers. This plant has usually two leaves but sometimes one. Each glossy leaf is divided into three leaflets, each emanate upward from a single stalk and provide umbrella-like shade to the flower. Hardiness zones 4-9, (-32øC/-25øF, -5øC/25øF) in Winter. Enjoys a moist, fertile, well-drained, neutral to acidic soil in a cool, shady site. Water regularly; do not overwater.

Keep pot in warm situation 20øC/68øF, 24øC/75øF. Arisaema seeds will usually sprout within 4-6 weeks and will proceed to grow for up to 2-4 months.

Germination can take longer depending on their degree of unbroken dormancy, don't give up.
Scarification / Stratification This will break their dormancy. It creates a cold and moist environment for the seeds.

If any seeds begin to sprout during the cold stratification, simply remove the seed and plant.
