Other Names: Arum Lily
Scientific Name: Zantedeschia Aethiopica
Native: South Africa
This lily is a rhizomatous herbaceous perennial with a preferred habitat in streams and ponds or on river banks. It can grow upto 1 meter tall and produces large clumps of broad, arrow shaped dark green leaves with spectacular, large inflorescences. At the center of the spathe is a fragrant yellow spadix, much like the Peace Lilies of Spathiphyllum and some Anthurium species. Easy to care for these plants work well in large containers or on contained areas or paths (as they can become invasive if conditions suit them). The plant on sale may or may not be in bloom at the time of sale, but will bloom in time. This particular variety of Calla Lily has dark green leaves speckled with white. Two varieties of blooms are available - purple and yellow.
*All our plants are organically grown without the use of any chemical fertilizers, fungicides or pesticides.

Calla Lily Potted Bulb
GROWING: Re-pot in a larger container or grow in-ground to increase root and foliage growth. Grow separately as this plant is quite demanding of soil/water resources. Trim off old, drying leaves from time to time and add this as shredded foliage around your plant to increase humus and soil health.
LIGHT: If growing indoors, place in a bright spot with exposure to bright ambient light for at least six hours daily. If growing outdoors, place in full shade or semi-shade as exposure to strong direct sunlight will burn the leaves of this plant.
WATERING: Daily, throughout the year. Do not allow soil to dry out completely between watering events. If growing indoors, ensure that drip trays are emptied regularly.
FERTILIZING: Our plants are sold in organically enriched, NPK+MagSulf strong, potting mixes that would need no additional soil amendments for at least one year. If re-potting/migrating to a larger container, we recommend the use of Mandy's Farm Foliage Plant Potting Mix or one similar to it.
