Jack-In-The-Pulpit

Arisaema triphyllum

Habitat:

Woodland habitat

Notes:

This is a first spotting of this species for me! I'm sure I've passed over them many times in the timber, but my new-found interest in plants makes me more aware while out and about.

Thanks Adarsha! One of the good things about Project Noah is that you never miss anything, as it's always there to find:) It's really difficult to keep up with everyone's awesome sightings. Thanks for checking it out!

Thanks Tom! This was a pretty cool spotting for me. Now that I am paying more attention to plants, a new world is opening up. That will change as soon as the insects are on the move:) They've started, but its still pretty slow here.

KarenPuracan, I will add that cropped photo when I get a chance. We'll see what it comes out like:) Mohammad, these are not carnivorous. Some insects do perish when falling in the bulb if there is water in it, but the plants do not consume them. Thank you also Sckel and science956!

Wouldn't it be cool if you would crop pic #3 so that only the stripes of the "pulpit" and "Jack were seen? I love those super close-up "what is it" guessing games I would find in nature magazines as a kid.

Aww! I remember as a kid growing up in the woods of Michigan, giggling and giggling when mom showed me "Jack". It still makes me smile all these years later. Thanks!!!

Congrats Bill, your lovely capture has earned you Spotting of the Day!
Jack in the pulpit is so named because the plant is said to look like a preacher standing in a pulpit (a raised platform or lectern in a church). This exotic looking perennial plant is native to moist woodlands in eastern North America.

Thanks for commenting Stanislav Gres and Marta! I am really looking forward to keeping an eye on this one. It is the only one that I could find, but a little worried because it is so close to the trail. I hope nobody damages it.
