Vigorously clumping species with green spathes striped purple. The fingered foliage is divided into how many lobes? Check the name--but do not be surprised if a mature bulb eventually ignores this--we have found that very very few plants have developed reading skills to the point of adequately understanding the names and descriptions which have been imposed upon them by botanists. Certainly the Pinella crew is quite uninterested in the botanic literature printed about them. These can selfsow with abandon if the site suits them: beware!
|Cultural Code||HH HT|
Some of you grow only indoors, some only in terrariums; many of you have hobby greenhouses; while a growing number of customers live in subtropical or tropical areas of the world. These brief codes are an attempt to suggest whether or not a particular plant will do well in your particular conditions.
If an entry has the cluster HP CGH, this means normal house plant culture will be successful if the plant is given a cool CGH moist location; however if the entry has the cluster CGH HP, you would interpret this to suggest that while Cool Greenhouse conditions are needed for total success with this plant, House Plant conditions will be adequate, while not ideal. If the cluster is HH CGH you would interpret this to mean that while in Zone 8 or below this will be winter hardy outdoor, further north it will need considerable mulch, a cold frame, or a Cool Greenhouse to thrive. And so on.×
