I got four blooms on mine over the summer. Didn't turn into fruit though; after about six weeks they just shrivelled up. I just plucked the last one off Sunday. I read on other sites to remove the blooms immediately, but I didn't. The new leaves don't appear to be compromised. Growing in a tight pot, don't water much, but mist often.

I have five - four variegated cultivars, including a miniature one, and an all-green species plant. The only special consideration I've noticed is that they prefer a small pot - they like being a little bit rootbound. My green species one wasn't doing well until I potted it down one size, then it took off and started thriving.

The plant throws greenish-white spath-like flowers about twice a year. Flowers are followed by fleshy oval shaped fruit. The fruit start out green changing to yellow or orange and finally bright red. Fruit can be removed from the plant when red and plump. New plants can be started in damp peat moss or sand in a zip-lock bag.

This plant was kept inside, but with the low humidity caused by the constant use of A/C for most of the year it declined rapidly. It was transplanted outside under some palms and has done very well. During the winter when our temperatures drop below 60 it tends to drop leaves fairly rapid. It recovers quickly once spring arrives.

The plant contains Aroin, Aronin, Aroidin, Arin, Saponine and some Prussic accid. The sap can cause severe irritation of the skin and at mucous membranes. The fresh parts of the plants are 'nt that poisonous as Dieffenbachia but have nearly the same effects.
