Calla Lily Care

Anonymous added on July 6, 2015 | Answered

Four years ago when I bought my first house I was given a Calla Lily for a house warming gift. I love this flower and want to care for it properly but I feel I am failing miserably. It started out as a small plant and is now MASSIVE (4 feet tall and to full to wrap my arms around) and I have transplanted the small off shoots to the point that I know have half a dozen large plants. The problem is that they seem to 'crumple' on themselves. As if they are simply too tall to bear their own weight. The stalks bend/break and drop. How do I fix this? Plant deeper? Use wooden dowels as support? Is it ever appropriate to cut them back? Your advice is greatly appreciated!
