Amend the soil with compost before planting, as Arum like their soil to be humus-rich. Water thoroughly after planting.
Divide clumps every 3 years when the plant is dormant in late summer. Apply a mulch in the autumn which will help retain moisture and provide the plants with nutrients.
It is possible to propagate Arum by division of clumps of tubers after flowering or by seed sown in autumn, having removed the fleshy pulp.
