Cultural information: In the old days we only had the white Calla Lily. Today there are a few more choices of Calla Lilies. Breeders have developed new hybrid Calla with Crimson Red, pale Pink, Yellow, Yellow with Black throat, and Yellow fading to Orange flowers. Calla Lily flowers are long lived as a cut flower and especially useful in weddings.

Calla Lilies kept as indoor flowering house plants prefer to be kept in a well lit location that's just shy of full sun and not to hot. Check your Calla Lily for water every couple of days until you become familiar with your plants needs. The soil should be kept moist at all times. Feed your Calla Lily every two weeks while the plant is flowering with a balanced liquid fertilizer. If the Calla Lily plant is growing, but not flowering, feed monthly. If the Calla Lily plant is not growing feed every two or three months.
