Obviously, the production of male or female flowers on these plants in any given season is not determined by a sex-determining gene; a floral developmental program is set in motion as floral primordia are laid down at the end of the preceding growing season, and either a male or female inflorescence is produced, as in the case of Jack-in-the-pulpit (Arisaema triphyllum).
In species such as Arisaema triphyllum, individuals are male (staminate) in the first flowering season and produce female (pistillate) flowers in subsequent seasons.
