Caring for Calla Lily plant indoors
Received one for Father's funeral and would really like to keep it alive. Came with no information - is about 3 ft tall and probably already too much plant for the pot. Seems to wither down quickly in direct sunlight, leaves get floppy. (I live in central IL). Thank you for any help you can provide!

By nature a Calla Lily is an outdoor plant but can be grown indoors.
They need bright light, an East or West facing window is best.
Calla Lily are fussy about temperature and ideal temps are no warmer then 65 degrees F daytime and no colder then 50 degrees F night temperatures.
Soil should be moist but never soggy. Calla Lily will die from root rot if they sit in poorly draining soil.
No fertilizer should be needed.
Drooping leaves and stems can be due to water issues. Either too much or too little.
