Well-drained soil

Prior to planting your Calla tubers, it is important to prepare the soil properly. Adding mulch to the soil will help maintain a constant temperature, which will help to keep your callas stress-free. Mulch will also improve the consistency of the soil and help lock in valuable moisture. Calla lilies thrive in well-drained, loose soil.

Full sun

Calla lilies require full sun. When choosing where to plant, remember that calla lilies average between 1 and 3 feet high and have a diameter of approximately 1 to 1½ feet when fully grown. Calla tubers should be planted fairly deep (around 4 inches for best results).

Calla maintenance instructions

Allow your calla tubers dry out in a well-ventilated area. After the tubers have hardened and the soil has been prepared, they should be planted at a depth of roughly 2 inches with the developing foliage pointing upwards. Calla tubers need 1 to 1½ feet of growing space between each plant. After planting, thoroughly water the tubers. It is important to keep the soil evenly moist but not soaked. Depending on the variety, soil temperature, and weather conditions, you can expect calla lilies to begin blooming within 60 to 90 days.

Once the foliage has withered away, dig up the calla tubers and store them in a cool, dry place until spring. They can be divided prior to storage, as long as the severed sections are allowed to dry. Doing this will prevent the open wounds from rotting. Once all danger of frost has subsided, the calla tubers can be replanted and fertilized.
