They love moist soil but not soaked in water. Do not irrigate with calcareous water (excessively hard tap water).

Potted calla that does not bloom
If the calla is in a pot and you have been growing it for several years, it is normal that it has lost flowering. Why? Because the calla lilies develop from rhizomes which multiply underground. Proceed to repot the calla, from what was a single plant, you will be able to obtain many calla ready toredirect.

When the flower buds appear (or in any case in mid-spring), you need to apply a liquid fertilizer to be administered once a week. The most suitable liquid fertilizer to stimulate the flowering of calla lilies, as well as having the classic macro elements such asnitrogen, phosphorus and potassium, must be rich in microelements such as iron, manganese, copper, zinc and boron. The fertilizer for flowering must be low in nitrogen, rich in phosphorus, potassium and microelements mentioned.

Among the various products on the market, we point out the organic fertilizer (of vegetable nature) Bio Bloom.This fertilizer is rich in micronutrients and plant-derived hormones to stimulate abundant flowering. On the package it says that it is suitable forgrowing plants indoors but, in reality, it is also perfect for those who grow in the garden, in the ground: the essential micronutrients, in fact, are the same both for those who grow at home, in pots, and in the ground. What changes are the doses and the frequency of fertilization. Those who grow calla lilies in pots will have to fertilize weekly, starting from spring and for the entire duration of flowering. Those who grow calla lilies in the open ground will have to fertilize starting from spring but every two weeks.
