And what a beautiful plant (and photo) to start this thread with. 

Does this species tend to produce multiple cormlets?

Just like I said on your Facebook posting of the same image "hoot hoot". ;D  The flowers look just like a little owl.

Yes Rick
They produce normally enough cormlets

They will be harvested later on the day

Yes mark a beauty

This is one of the 34 pictures I took

Gene, that's a mighty impressive colony, like a gaggle of geese.  Did you grow these from seed?  Your climate is more advanced than mine, my plants just broke ground a couple days ago.

When growing these from seed how many years to bloom? I have quite a number of seedlings now that were sown 2-3 years ago.

Amy: I don't know how long it takes from seed for many Arisaema species, but I have been getting seed from the Arisaema Enthusiast Group, and have been pushing the seedlings along. As soon as they go dormant, I unpot them, and place the tuberlets in a ziplock plastic bag, and they go into the fridge for 2 to 3 months. This lets me start them into growth at least twice per year. With plenty of feeding, it is possible to cut a year or more off the time to first bloom. I am hoping to speed up the growth of several other species this way (ciliatum var liubaense, consanguineum with silvered foliage, fargesii, heterophyllum, jaquemontii, serratum, sikokianum, and tortuosum).Now if only the new seeds would arrive for this season's effort (candidissimum, costatum, and limbatum).
