Gently remove and examine the tubers. Are they dried out or full of fungus? Streaks of orangish-pink are sometimes seen on breaks in the tuber. These should be cut out and the cut treated with garden sulphur. Here is an article from So. Florida Univ who also struggled to get calla to grow. He figured it out and shared his insights. http://shell.cas.usf.edu/~essig/Florida%20Gardening/2001-02%20The%20Secret%20to%20Great%20Calla%20Lilies.pdf
