Description

Arisaema nepenthoides is a stunning hardy Arisaema that carries its inflorescence on a tall thin mottled stem. The spathes are brownish purple mottled with green and striped with distinctive white vertical lines. Held aloft on such tall stems they appear translucent when backlit by the sun and the open hood really does resemble that of a cobra although it gets its specific name from the tubular lower part of the spathe which resembles the genus Nepenthes, the tropical Pitcher Plant. 

Environment

Cool, dappled shade under a spreading canopy of trees is ideal for growing arisaema. However, the north or east side of a building, that protects them from all day sun and heat will work as well. While arisamea can and do thrive in an astonishing array of countries and elevations, it is critical to get the specific conditions right for them to flourish in your garden. The soil must be moist but not wet, with excellent drainage to ensure the tubers and roots do not rot.

Arisaema are highly prone to rot in poorly drained conditions. The soil should also be porous – with plenty of air spaces. Work the soil well to break up any compacted areas, and incorporate leaf mold, compost and perlite to improve both the nutrition and structure of the soil. Raised beds or small hillocks will also help you to achieve the level of drainage so important for happy cobra lilies. & excellent drainage. It should be planted with plenty of sharp sand and coarse bark immediately surrounding the tubers & will thrive in an organically-rich surrounding substrate with plenty of leaf mould and humus.

Plant arisaema tubers 4-6 inches deep, to give them a good opportunity to develop a healthy network of roots, and to protect from cold in the lower zones of their hardiness range. Arisaema should be kept lightly moist, but not wet. Excellent drainage is critical to ensuring your tubers do not rot. Once potted they should be watered sparingly when their new roots are shoot emerging, thus minimizing the chances of the tuber rot. Water in the evenings with a sprinkler or watering can when the soil is dry

When the root system has developed and leaves begin to unfold from the leaf-sheates, they can be watered regularly and fertilized with slow release fertilizers.

Once the flowering is complete and the leaves turn yellow, watering should be discontinued and tubers given rest during their dormancy period.

Landscape Use

Arisaema makes a bold statement in the garden & can be used in indoor gardens and balconies. It is also used as back border or focal plant due to its height, beautiful trumpet-shaped flowers and leaf texture.


Properly preparing the soil for bulb planting is essential! Good soil drainage is essential for planting bulbs. If your soil has a lot of clay content, consider adding a bit of coco peat. Consider your sunlight requirements based not he type of bulb you have chosen to go with. Some plants might be happy in a semi shade environment under a tree whereas someone might require full sunlight.

The general rule of thumb for planting spring bulbs is to plant two to three times as deep as the bulbs is tall. This means most large bulbs like tulips or daffodils will be planted about 8 inches deep while smaller bulbs will be planted 3-4 inches deep. Planting depth is measured from the bottom of the bulb.
