Not sure what you mean. The growth at the base of the flower stem, from which all the stems and leaves arise, is the rhizome, or underground stem. This is the part you divide to make more plants, or dig up and overwinter inside if you live in a cold area, then plant again in the spring: This article has information https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/bulbs/calla-lily/growing-calla-lilies-and-care-of-calla-lilies.htm
