They have arum-like, fresh green, slightly glossy foliage and small inflorescences similar to those in Arisaema, yet with a recurving spathe and a protruding spadix.
Plant in pots in any humus rich, yet well drained soil in a sunny to partially shaded spot. Carefully water during winter while plants are being in growth. During summer keep dormant plants completely dry.
