Planting/Care Instructions +

Planting Instructions: Native wild Arisaema triphyllum, (Jack-in-the-Pulpit) plants should be planted in fertile rich, medium wet to wet soil and in part shade to full shade. Needs constantly moist soil rich in organic matter. Does poorly in heavy clay soils. Dig a hole large enough to hold the roots. If any roots seem tightly bound, loosen before planting. Fill the hole with water and position the plant so the crown (where the roots meet the stem) is just slightly below the soil line. Fill the hole with soil and water again.

Pests or Diseases: No serious insect or disease problems.
