The above slide show gives you an idea of the progress a Jack-in-the-Pulpit makes in a four week time frame.
The instructions for propagating Jack in the Pulpit said...
60 days cold, moist storage followed by 60 days of warms moist storage
then back in the refrigerator for 2 more months. My Jacks couldn't wait
for spring and sprouted after their first round in the refrigerator.
February 21, 2011 - Spring is just around the corner. Our
Jack-in-the Pulpit plants are now 7 weeks old. They will stay just
about this size during the entire 2011 growing season.
Raising wildflowers takes a great deal of patience, these Jack - in -
the pulpits will not be marketable until the spring of 2012. Luckily
most of our plants don't mature this slowly.
" Although larvae of these species may feed on plant roots outdoors, none
causes serious damage outside the home. Any root feeding by these species
in gardens or landscapes is usually minor in comparison with their beneficial
role as decomposers in helping to convert dead vegetation into nutrients
for plant growth."
