    Default What's up with my Arisaema costatum?

    Might anyone have an idea what's going on with this plant? I was wondering why it hadn't produced leaves yet. Usually it gets leaves and then the hooded flower - you know, the Jack-in-the Pulpit type flower. This year, it's doing this. I'm sure it has something to do with seed production or something, but it's just never grown anything like this before. Any ideas? Will it grow leaves yet?

    I sure can't help you out with the plant in your pic, but the lava rock is going into the pots asap. Another stinky got beheaded this morning, same time, too.

    I don't think it's squirrels though, am wondering maybe birds for nest lining or even mice.

    Mice could do that. You know, these things are grown for food in some countries. Maybe they like them too.


    I really do like all sorts of wildlife, but at times like this I just go into terminator mode. These critters have all sorts of stuff to eat. Why the plants you dearly love?

    Grrrrr,


    I almost missed both these two latest additions. I don't understand why the thread wasn't indicating it had new posts.

    Louis, I don't think it was the grackles attacking your stinkies. I've known them to eat fruit & seeds (and I include things like peas & tomatoes when I say fruit), but not stems & leaves.

    I use chicken wire around quite a few of my bulb plants for rabbit protection. It's surprisngly inconspicuous. It wouldn't be much use against mice or sleazy squirrel protection, though.ests:

    Cheers,

    Rob
