Calla Lily Houseplant

Anonymous added on May 15, 2011 | Answered

I got a calla lily plant about 3 weeks ago. It looks like the flowers are beginning to die off. I know they need a 'dormant' period. My question is: Is there a certain time of the year they should be dormant? With this being summer, it is concerning me.

They normally go into dormancy in the winter, but ones that are in containers can be forced into dormancy anytime. They may need more water and light to avoid going into dormancy, or you can just let them go and then enjoy another round of blooms indoors later in the year. This article will help:
