Calla Lily

The flowers were tall and blooming, but now the base of the flowers are large and very hard and heavy and bending over and just have a partical small bloom. What is causing this?

Thank you.

It sounds as if they are getting ready to produce seed pods. As the pods mature, their weight will naturally bend the stem to the ground. Eventually, they will begin to turn yellow and become mushy, indicating they are ripe. At this point, you can harvest the pods for propagating additional plants. Otherwise, you can simply cut them off once they appear or cut the spent blooms just prior to their development.
