Baby Arisaema

It is year two for these baby Arisaema that I started from seed last year.

The two in front are Arisaema speciosum and are looking quite pretty with their red leaf rim. I potted these individually last year before getting Deborah's advice to leave them put. There was a 3rd pot of speciosum but nothing has emerged this year. 

The tall pot at the back had mixed Arisaema seedlings in it but there are only five plants there this year. I wonder could it be that the mixed pot contains Arisaema that will come later?

I do have another pot with Arisiaema consanguineum and another with Arisaema tortuosum and there is nothing coming up in either of those. I think someone said that consanguineum will come later so they may be still alive. What about tortuosum?

Any advice on further care would be welcome.
