Description: One of the most dramatic of the Himalayan species of these tuberous perennials. With a very broad spathe on a short stem, the spathe embossed with dark purple gill-like markings, adding to the drama. While the spadix is very long narrowing to thread-like and extending out 20-60cm. Meanwhile the foliage is large and trifoliate. As with all arisaemas, make sure there is acute drainage below the tuber, as this rots and is replaced by a new tuber annually. Surround the tuber with a leafy airy moisture retentive soil, best in part shade.
