Urospatha (Twisted Aquatic Arrowhead)

Twisted Aquatic Arrowheads are a small genus of tropical evergreen aroids which are native to Central and South America, where they occur in marshes and wet areas. These rather rarely seen species produce peculiar inflorescences with a showy spirally twisted spathe and ornamental sagittate (= arrow-shaped) leaves. Despite their native habitat all Urospatha species can be cultivated successfully in any humus rich soil, which should be kept always wet. Keep plants in partial shade (summer) to full sun (winter) at a minimum of some 20°C throughout the year.
Sow seeds flat and horizontally on any humus rich soil, cover seeds only slightly with soil. Keep soil moist at all times and pots at a minimum of some 25°C (optimum 28°C) in a sunny spot. In all Urospatha species germination is very, very slow, and it may take up to 12 months. The first leaves are more or less lance-shaped and will gradually extend to the typical arrow-like form.
