    Maybe I have both forms.....The purple and white striped on might be spp pusillium and the green one pictured might be stedwardsonii. I don't really care what they are all I am calling them is A. triphyllu purple and white and green and white! lol. I foudn these guys in my Uncles backyard "foresty area" in heavy clayey soil along with the skunk cabbage in a muckier muddy soil.

    Dustin,
    That's excellent!
    The website metions Naga and the cobra god of the hindus, Arisema griffithii is actually the "true" cobra lilly as it's up to 20cm wide hooded spathe truely resembles the scaled black reptilian face of a king cobra flaring and giving the "hypnotic stare". When it is coming up from the ground A. griffithii emerges with two downward folded leaves wihth the inforecence some distance below. It looks just like some black winged creature emerging from the earth.
    Here's one emerging, the round part is the "head" (not my plant or pic)


    I've got one on order when they come available!

    There is also Arisaema sarracenoides but I can't find a pic online at the moment. I have pics in the Genus Arisaema book, it resembles a pitcher of Sarracenia psittacina, only standing 90* upright. You can't really see the spadix at all.

    BTW Heronswood Nursery has A. nepenthoides but only if you go there (Orgeon). Possibly they will have bulbs for mailing in the fall! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Ooooh, yes, Arisema griffithii !!!
    That's on my list of Arisaema's to get.
    I also want A. sikkokianum for its elegance and stark contrast in colors. Plus it looks like an alien poking his bald white head out of the pitcher [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img]
