Your Calla Lily plant absorbs water through the roots and pulls the water through it's system. If the plant has excess water, pressure builds up and water is forced out of tiny holes in the leaves. Water can drip from the lily leaves.

Sometimes it may be referred to as 'crying'.

Be careful not to overwater your plant.

This is called guttation and occurs when your plant has had too much water.
