How do I plant the calla lily?
You can leave the calla lily in the included nursery pot and put it on a dish. Of course it will look better in a decorative pot. Make sure the pot has a hole so the Zantedeschia can absorb water from the saucer.
This calla needs moist soil. That's why it is always a good idea to place the plant in a larger pot with fresh potting soil. Cover the bottom with hydro grains and fill up the pot with potting soil. While at it, water extra so the soil stays moist.
Planting the calla lily in the garden
After blooming, the calla lily can also be planted in the garden. Make sure to plant it in moist soil in the sun or semi-shade.
A garden corner with fairly moist soil is ideal for your zantedeschias and will look stunning combined with hostas. The blue-green leaf hosta especially will contrast beautifully with the white inflorescences of the arum. Various colours of arum lily together in a large planter can also look quite spectacular.
Water this wonderful mix of Calla Lilies in the summer so the ground is constantly damp. For a rich flowering, we recommend adding plant food when watering. Place a saucer under the plant pot and always leave water in it for dry periods. Do not fertilise during the flowering period.
Did you know that the Calla Lilies flowers are actually leaves? The vase-shaped 'flower' is not actually a flower. The true flowers are tiny and sit on a small, pale yellow spadix. This spadix is almost completely surrounded by the decorative leaves. Since its wonderful leaves last so long, Calla Lilies are very popular as cut flowers. Would you like to pick some Calla Lilies from your garden? Slowly pull out the entire flower stalk from the plant. The arrow-shaped, often spotted leaves can be used in flower arrangements.
