I'm not normally an arisaema person but with this one i'll make an exception, it really is rather nice..

Thanks SL!
I, on the other hand, really like them. This was the one that I wanted (plus a few others too).

Oh wow, I really like this one too.

Thanks Alex!
They're what I call a "Marmite plant" - you either love 'em or hate 'em.

A very striking spathe, lovely colour and markings, is it hardy?

2 Jun, 2011


It was described as hardy, although to be fair, the last winter or two were a little extreme.
This one will go into the new (insulated) raised bed when it's done - the other will be up against the wall of the house facing south.
So we'll see....

I love them. I really would like some more species for my garden but $$$ is so tight right now it is not an option. That red is really striking.

Thanks Rbt!
I'm a Marmite person too - Vegimite is a crime against humanity!!

Thought you might!

i think its shapes and colours i go for??
detail is definitely important, im not sure how big this is but i would want it somewhere i could see it.

i do think they should make a garden table that has a big space in its centre for plants.

15 Mar, 2012


It's quite a small one, 40cm or so.

I'll put my mind to the table..............

15 Mar, 2012


do you think it would work?

40 cm sounds ideal ~ centre piece for the table with little pleiones around, and those mini ferns???

btw saw an orchid, in the big GC near here, £59.99 it hangs in a basket, no soil.

Would need a gravel tray, and.................... I'm thinking!!

That would be a Vanda orchid Sticki. They love heat, light and humidity. Sounds dear, even for a Vanda.

15 Mar, 2012


it was Vanda, had quite a few flowers on, i would cry if that died and i had spent all that so i will not be even thinking of buying one

15 Mar, 2012


must have been quite a size for that price Sticki...

15 Mar, 2012


Possibly two feet, tip of flower to end of root??

15 Mar, 2012


It's a good size, but a heck of a price!

I reckon they brought them in specially for mothers day, they weren't there last week.
