Cala Lily

Posted by Loknath on 16th August, 2013

This is a very popular plant seen almost in every house in our hill stations. The white flowers are attractive spathes with a golden spadix and the leaves are oval-pointed, about 8 inches long and 4 inches wide on a 6-inch-stem that springs from the soil. The leaves on their own are decorative as well. In September or October the rhizomes are potted about 3 inches deep in a soil which has plenty .of humus. They flower from spring to summer. Calla lily likes light shade for most of the day and can be kept in semi-shaded verandahs or in containers on window sills. Pink, yellow and rusty orange shades are also available.
