General: The common name Calla indicates some species of rhizomatous plants, originating in central and southern Africa. At our latitudes are considered mostly flat plants or hot greenhouse and are very cultivated for the elegance of spate and leaves. Cultivated in the garden, in a sheltered, bright but semi-shaded place, and bloom in the late spring and summer months. These calle are often cultivated as apartment plants, so you can enjoy the flowers as early as January or February, until late spring. Exposure: These plants require average minimum temperatures of not less than 10-12 °c, so in Europe they are cultivated in the apartment; We choose a well-lit position, but far from direct sunlight, which could ruin the foliage. In their natural habitat they live on the bottom of the forest where little light arrives, filtered by the leaves of the trees. Fortunately the leaves of Zantedeschia are very luxuriant and decorative, and produce a beautiful dark green bush, often spotted with white. The Calla lily fears the temperature fluctuations and the air blows, so we avoid placing it too close to a window or to heat sources. Periodically it is advisable to take the withered flowers but also the ruined foliage.
Watering: Watering will be regular, but not excessive; We always try to water only when the soil is dry, but we avoid leaving it without water for prolonged periods of time.
