After the flower of the Calla Lily dies off, something like pods form. What are they? If planted, will they grow new plants? I purchased a Calla Lily plant and it is slowly dying off. It is still in the pot and I would like to prepare it for winter so I may plant it in my garden come spring. Is there another medium I could use for storing other than peat moss? Should it be stored in an open container, in a closed up box, plastic or what?

You can save the seeds from the seed pods that have formed, or remove them by cutting them back.
I listed several links for you with information on Calla Lily care and wintering over.
You can remove the bulbs from the pots when the leaves have died down and dry and store them according to the directions below.
Use peat moss or even some saw dust to store the bulbs in a box with the top closed off but not to tightly.
They will be ready to move to the garden in the spring or a larger pot.
