In this paper, we consider a class of semilinear parabolic equations with singular potential on manifolds with conical singularities. At high initial energy level $J(u_0) \gt d$, we present a new sufficient condition to describe the global existence and nonexistence of solutions for problem (1.1)-(1.3) respectively. Moreover, by applying the Levine’s concavity method, we give some affirmative answers to finite time blow up of solutions at arbitrary positive initial energy $J(u_0) \gt d$, including the upper bound of blowup time. Finally, we show a lower bound of the blowup time and blowup rate for problem (1.1)-(1.3) under arbitrary initial energy level.
