A website for gardeners has published an article on growing Arum plants. These are Mediterranean plants with arrow shaped leaves. Some plants can grow in colder parts of the world. The article describes the best conditions for growing the plant. It states the best ways to propagate these plants, recommending cuttings rather seeds. The article states these plants are poisonous and thus are not recommended for gardeners who have children or pets. The article concludes by listing various plants that are similar to the Arum. A photo is enclosed.
- There are over 32 types of arum plants, and all of them are poisonous.
- Arums are perennial plants, meaning that they tend to have long lifespans of 2 or more years.
- Arum plants tend to flower and will grow into orange or red berries, which should not be eaten.
“Anthurium plants are arum plant members, often grown as a houseplant in cooler areas or landscaping plants in USDA zones 10 or higher.”
