White Calla Lilies Did Not Bloom

I planted giant mail order white Calla lilies in containers outdoors this spring. Got great looking foliage but no blooms. Fertilized monthly and kept moist but no lilies. Plants look great and are still growing in an enclosed but unheated patio. I’m about to let them go dormant but how can I ensure blooms next year?

You may have given them too much fertilizer. Fertilizer with too much nitrogen will cause this to happen. This article will help:

Calla Lilies in Small Water Pond

I’m growing some Calla lilies in one of my ponds at work. The winter here is starting to get cold and my lilies are looking sick. I really don’t know what to do from here. Please help.

They need to be stored for the winter, most likely. This article will help you: http://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/bulbs/calla-lily/calla-lily-winter-care.htm

Calla Lilies

My daughter dug up some tubers now, so they have foliage but no flowers. They are wilting quicker than I can plant. Should I keep then moist and continue to plant or let them dry out and plant next year?

I would simply allow them to dry out and then replant them later. This article will tell you how to store them for the winter: http://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/bulbs/calla-lily/calla-lily-winter-care.htm

Can you please tell me if I should cut the stems of the calla lily flower off after it has died?

You can. It will not hurt the plant, but it will not help it either. Pruning the old flowers is done more for aesthetics.

How long will it take my calla lily to bloom inside? I just repotted the bulb from last year.

Calla Lily Question

Approximately how long does it take the rhizomes to come up after they are planted? Every article I have read gives instructions on what to do when the leaves appear, but I have no idea how long it takes for the leaves to appear. The oriental lilies I planted at the same time are beginning to come up. They are in pots in the greenhouse. The temperature varies from about 58 degrees at night to 80 degrees during the day. They were planted March 10.

ANSWERS

Quality rhizomes, which are ready to sprout, usually take 3-6 weeks. Varieties with larger blooms take longer. Make sure you obtain rhizomes from reliable source. Temperature is normally a factor, with estimated time based on 70 degrees F night temperature and 85 degrees F day temperature.
