Calla lilies need to be planted deeply for their size. Plant them at a depth of 4 inches, spacing each bulb 12 inches apart. In cooler zones, start bulbs indoors in late winter and transplant them in the spring when danger of frost has passed. Apply a bulb fertilizer monthly during the active growing season. Calla lilies can also be grown as house plants if placed in a sunny window. Most Calla lilies need a rest period after flowering, so gradually withhold water until the leaves die back and let plants rest for 2 to 3 months before resuming watering to encourage new growth.
Calla lilies are often used in wedding bouquets because their meaning signifies magnificence and beauty.
i would like to see a diagram of the specific parts of this lily
Planted seeds from pods and they are all growing. Will these develop tubers and will they bloom this year?
I'd also like to see a specific diagram of the calla lily.
How long does it take before the calla begins to sprout after planting? I planted my Royal Blue indoors to transplant outside aftr danger of frost has past. It has been about 6 weeks and no sprout. What up. I am in St. Paul, Minnesota and we have had a slow spring with little sun. Pot are however in a warm room.
For the person in St Paul, I spoke with a neighbor this morning and she doesn't plant her Calla Lilies until May. You might have started a bit early.
I am wondering, my blooms turned to big pods of seed. Can I use them for new plant's and will they bloom?
If calla lilys are planted outdoors, should you leave them in the ground during the winter or bring them inside? I live in Memphis and have frost during the winter.

I was given a calla lily for Christmas last year as a bulb. I had it outside this summer in a pot, I brought it inside for winter. I noticed this week that there are water droplets at the tip of each leaf. Is this due to being over watered? Or is this normal? I never saw such a thing.
