My gorgeous calla has been in blossom for 2-1/2 weeks. The flower stems are bending and the flowers are wilting. The plant is in the southern window (indoors). HELP!

Generally, potted calla lilies bloom 4-6 weeks, so this is unusual. Blooming may be delayed or shortened if not receiving adequate lighting. Also, you should give the plant a dormant period following the bloom time to encourage additional blooming.
