Care Calla lily
These plants are bulbeous. The development is erect, they tend to grow both in height and in width, giving origin to a rounded shrub. This plant in the summer assumes a yellow colouring; it is large in size and can reach 1 m high. It doesn't keep its leaves in the winter.

Temperatures Calla lilySole pieno
Let's grow the the Calla lily in a luminous place, with direct sunlight. Let's avoid exposing the The Calla lily to temperatures below 15įC. During late Spring we can place them outdoors, possibly sheltered by the wind.If you desire cleaning the ground from the bulbous plants after flowering, wait for the leaves to dry; later itís possible to take the bulbs out of the ground and place them somewhere dark, cool and dry, until the best season to plant them again.

Irrigation Calla lilyTenere asciutto
We suggest watering the the Calla lily every 1-2 weeks with 1-2 glasses of water , which means when the soil has been dry for days; if the season should be very hot and arid we can intensify the quantity of irrigations, although we must avoid leaving the substratum soaked with water. We suggest not to exceed with the waterings: if the soil remains damp too long, it can favour the development of rotten in the bulbs.

Adversity Calla lily
As the day-time temperatures rise at the beginning of the spring, it is agreeable to practice a preventive treatment, with a wide-range insecticide, which should be applied when there arenít flowerings in the garden. Before the buds become too large, it is advisable to also treat them with a wide-range fungicide, to prevent the development of fungal diseases which spread easily when there is an elevated environmental moisture.

Substrate Calla lily
Letís favour soft soils, with an elevated drainage.
