If you want to grow Calla Lily, it is best to get a tuber in August and plant it in a pot in August, which consists of a mixture of two parts of meadow soil. One part deciduous, one part garden soil and something old. cow dung. If the soil is thin, poor in nutrients, Calla Lily will develop a leaf, but it will not bloom. Care should be taken not to plant the tuber deep. If you have a garden, it is best to bury it in the ground together with the pot by the beginning of September.

When the plant is chased and the young shoots break through the soil in the pot, bring it into a cool room. Calla Lily is a wetland plant, so, except during the dormant period from June to August, it should be watered abundantly so that there is always some water in the base. In December, when the leaf is already fully developed, we can bring it into a warm room and keep it at a temperature of about 12 ° C in a bright place.

If we water it abundantly and fertilize it every 8 days, it will bloom all winter. In late spring, when flowering is over, we gradually stop watering, and from June to August we keep it completely dry. Then we take the tuber out of the pot, shake off the old soil and plant it again in fresh soil. We can separate the young tubers and propagate the plant, or leave them all together, so in a couple of years we will get a large strong group of feces.
