Arisaema Kaichen A-55

Note: Hi everyone,
One spectacular success in this season of no sun here for two weeks and
nearly daily rain in central coastal New Jersey has been this Arisaema.
Originally received as A-55, Arisaema flavum, from Kaichen last winter, that it
definitely is not. It has leaflets like a consanguinium and the camera really
brings out the silver stripe in each leaflet center, not as apparant in normal
veiw. However it has 2 leaf stalks per stem joining about 10cm above ground
level and is very robust and has not rotted down as many of my
consanguineums and others. Notice the patterned stem. Any ideas?
