Indoor Calla Lilies

Anonymous added on November 15, 2011 | Answered

I recently bought an indoor calla lily. I am keeping it in as much light as I can. The flowers and flower buds have begun to fall over, and the stems are getting bent. I have been straightening and propping them up on the rest of the plant, but I'm afraid they won't continue to flower. I've been watering lightly every few days. I know I must be doing something wrong. How do I keep the flowers from falling over?

You should give the plant a dormant period following the bloom time to encourage additional blooming. After blooming, calla lilies need a rest period. They may just be trying to going dormant. Give them time to go dormant and they should come back fine after this. Hold back on water do help them go into their dormancy.
