Not sure what type of calla lily it is, but it dropped a seed pod. Not sure what to do with it.


2. My Calla Lily Flower Is Filled With Green, Round Pod-Like Things

Asked by dianella143 - July 20, 2012

What are these? Only two or three flowers are full of these pod-like green things. They are round and are in clumps. What is this? Should I be concerned that it is something that could hurt the plant, etc. or something good?


3. Outdoor Calla Lilies Have a Green Mass of Round Nodules Inside

Asked by dianella143 - July 23, 2012

Why do my outdoor calla lilies have a mass of round connected green nodules filling the flower? This is on one of my plants. . . not any other.


4. Calla Lily Blooming in Clusters

Asked by liese531 - August 2, 2012

I have potted calla lilies that are blooming in big clusters. One flower has a large bunch in the center of it, which then blooms into multiple flowers. Has anyone seen this before? I have pictures if needed.

  • This is a condition called a fused blossom or fasciated blossoms. It is kind of like the siamese twins of the plant world. It can be cause by several things – from bacteria to just plain mutation. In most cases, while the flowers look odd, it is not harmful to the plant.

5. Care of Calla Lily

Asked by Anonymous - August 5, 2012

Please advise me about the care of calla lily. The plant is through producing flowers and the rest of the plant is now falling over. Should I cut the leaves? Also, I have not taken the bulbs out of the ground for several years and the plant does very well each year. I live in the northwest Salem, OR.


6. Calla Lilies

Asked by Anonymous - August 10, 2012

I bought calla lilies for indoor growing. It is August and the leaves and flowers started falling off. Is it getting ready for winter, or am I doing something wrong? What can I do to make them flower again?


7. Calla Lilies in Colorado

Asked by Anonymous - August 11, 2012

I have read your tips regarding wintering calla lilies and appreciate the information. You talk about Calla lilies being ‘stunted’ without a lot of sun. Does this mean they don’t open all the way? It gets into the 80’s and 90’s in Colorado. Is this too hot for full sun? My Calla lilies bloomed this year (they had blooms when I bought them. . . deep salmon colored blooms) but the blooms stayed curled up, which I loved, but does that mean they are not getting enough sun? I don’t want to burn them up in our hot weather. Please advise!

  • If the climate is very hot and very sunny, you might consider planting the calla lily in light afternoon shade or you can provide some shade during the hottest part of the day with a shade cover. For those in pots, you can simply move them to an ideal location as needed.
