Jack in the pulpit: When is the right time to split or transplant the bulbs or should plants be started from the red berries or seeds?

If it's container-grown you can transplant in the spring, otherwise wait till fall.

Jack in the Pulpit

I have six plants in pots that I brought to Salem, NY, Zone 4. I have been growing them in the ground in Brooklyn for over 20 years. 2 yesrs ago, I dug up the mother plant and divided them. I planted two bulbs [corms] in Salem which did not survive the winter. Since I am no longer in Brooklyn, what can I do to make sure I do not lose these plants over the winter?

my plants were planted in my woods and come up every year and have multiplied as you wrote yours did...before you moved them...I would put them in a shady area that is not disturbed and if put under trees will be naturally mulched by the fall leaves...I don't do anything to mine...I forgot them and remembered to look to see if they were alive and found at least 20 plants.....they produce an amazing seed stalk of red shiny seeds in a row at least 8 of them...try and harvest these and plant them to see if you can propagate them that way......b

Jack in Pulpit Failed to Come Up This Year

What would kill a group of well established jack in pulpits over the winter? The group has been growing in the same place for more than 10 years yet failed to reappear this spring. Other groups have sprouted this week but not the group with the largest plants. Winter was wetter than normal but bed is well drained. We have chipmunks in the bed. First photo is bare spot where jacks had grown. Second photo shows another group that has sprouted.

Excess moisture during winter or spring can kill off large groups of Jack In The Pulpit plants.

Jack in the Pulpit Plant

I want to plant a jack in the pulpit in memory of my mother. Can I plant them in a flower pot now and in the fall, transplant them in the ground? I can get seeds from Amazon pretty cheap.

Jack In The Pulpit would not grow in a container, they need a woodland area to grow in.

Jack in the Pulpit

I have a jack in the pulpit that has grown wild under my mature oak leaf hydrangea. It is about 2′ tall and about 1′ wide with tall mature stalks and newer fragile ones, both with pulpits. I would like to divide and transplant it to another spot in my garden. it is in bloom now and has in the past, developed fat, red berries later in the summer. One last bit of information – This plant is at least 35 years old. However (i am embarrassed to say) it has only been allowed to grow for the last ten because for the past 20 of those years i thought it was a weed and kept trying to pull it up!
How and when can I transplant and divide this?

Thank you for your help,
Kay Michaelis

Jack in the Pulpit

For 2 years, my friend and I have been trying to grow jack in the pulpits. Last fall, she put 1 corm, and I put 3, into the ground. Nothing happened . This spring (May), we each put 5 corms into 5 pots. I put 1 in full sun, 1 in shade, and 3 in part sun/shade. Still nothing. Help?

Jack-in-the-pulpits do better in shade, and the soil (which should be made up of a LOT of organic material) needs to stay moist.

You could try planting some corms directly into the ground in the fall -- again, make sure the soil is made up of content that the Jack-in-the-pulpit thrives in.
