I've recently received the standard beginer Jack in the Pulpit, Arisaema triphyllum and I'm wondering if it's common for the leaf or the inflorescence to emerge first?
Out of the 4 plants I recived two have leaves one has a "pitcher" which is nearly open with a still closed leaf and the other is still deciding what it wants to send up. I was just wondering, are the two which have their leaves almost unfurled not going to have pitchers this year or do they typically come after the leaf? Is the one with the pitcher first just a freak occurance?
Thanks for any thoughts! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
(hmm, perhaps a moderator can change the topic title to Jack in the pulpit II... sorry alandallas [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img] )
