Calla Lily Plants

which soil for calla

Anonymous added on June 26, 2015 | Answered

I just bought some calla lilies. They are pot bound all need repotting. Do I use general purpose soil or ericacious soil? I note they like a lot of water, as they will be in containers, do I need to put the containers on pebbles surrounded by water? Thank you.
