Calla Lillies

Post by Johara » October 19th, 2011, 10:12 am

Brought some Calla bulbs, thanks to Izhar's suggestion. Mine are struggling. My friend's, photos attached, are in bloom. Am a little jealous since I brought the bulbs for her and we planted the at the same time. :cry:

put them in semi shade... the sun is very bright nowadays and there is a 27F difference between day and night temperatures... dont worry if they get dormant... just stop watering and store the whole pot in a dry area... they'll sprout back in spring...

Calla lilies grow well in our spring and monsoon but struggle during May-June and October...

Their potting medium should be very loose with a large portion of well rotted compost or manure...

Thanks Izhar, have moved them to semi shade. May also have to change the soil, bought the wrong type this season.
Have a few flowers on the white cucumber vine, looking forward to the fruit.

I failed to get it to bloom for many years. Now it is no more on my list.

i have stopped growing this bulb because i failed to get flowers from it like i wanted.bulbs only appeal when planted in clumps.but i failed to bring it into flower.sorry to say but the one shown in the picture is also not appealing to eyes.

My callas finally bloomed, not all of them. Umar, you are right they may be more appealing in clump but the flower is still beautiful even alone.:)
