I've been puzzling over this one for hours. In theory I have a list of all seeds grown and all plants acquired. In practice they're all there except the one I want

Can anyone put a name to this one


 

pansyface

It looks like a Philippe Starck loo brush and holder.

Might be what it is pansy

It's a first class fly attracter

I know it can't be because they are tropical but it does look like one of those insect eating Pitcher Plants

I'm really impressed you have a list of what you've grown.

If I'm lucky I turn up a label,  and then I think... I wondered where that had gone.

It doesn't seem to have worked though does it fidget

I think it's an arisaema because I've grown a variety from seed and can't think what else it is Invicta. It's hardy though. It's the first 'flowering' but it's been through 2 very cold winters and one soggy one.

Certainly an aroid of some description. Have you sown seeds of Biarum? Not quite dark enough for Dracunculus though, but it could be.

nutcutlet

Hi Berghill. No I haven't  sown those.

I'm going to have a better look through my files later. I'm thinking maybe not arisaema as all my other arisaemas have a leaf or leaves at this point

Berghill

What size is this?

Atilla

Looks like Sauromatum venosum. They grow from seed though I grew mine from bulbs. They through out a large amount of seed and bulbs every year.

It's about 12inches give or take a bit Berghill.

Blairs, I looked at that one in my search and it does look right. I just can't remember sowing/buying/being given it. But I'll be looking out for that one in my files this evening. Thank you

Clearly, I have a lot to learn about arisaemas.  Any pics folks?  

nutcutlet

Hang on Verdun. I'm not sure this is one

Hinting though Nut   Just hinting ............

nutcutlet

I had a look, the only pics I could find were rather a poor one of A. speciosum but a good one of its seed head.

That's not done too well last year and this. Definitely shrinking.

A tortuosum is awake I'll see if I can get a photo of that.

Google Aroids and go to Images, there are a lot of them out there.

 

NC. I was about to suggest S. venosum, but I had to go and do some gardening. Gets in the way of everything!

nutcutlet

Quite right too Berghill. I'll be back to it in  a minute

I'm thinking this might be it and wondering about origin of seeds. One of the plant societies I belong to, (no names mentioned), has a reputation for seed being inaccurately labelled. Not the society's fault. Just ignorance or carelessness of members supplying seed.

Maybe this is one of the 'arisaemas' from a long ago order

Ben Candlin is the national seller of these, have a look on his website for ideas.

I still think Sauromatum

Lovely site blairs and I think you're right. Thank you very much. I do like to know what I'm growing

Mine did not smell and they change over the year, putting out leaf (a curious thing) then flower then another leaf (which dies back before Oct), then lots of bulblets and seed.
