Feature & Fact

Using a premier source we present the sophisticated, tough and wonderfully long lasting Unforgettable Calla.  Zantedeschia is a genus of twenty eight different species of flowering plants in the family Arecea. Naturally from southern Africa, south Africa through to Malawi. The name to the genus was named as a tribute to Italian botanist Giovanni Zantedeschia.

A must have plant if you want to sophisticate your room or occasions and certainly a focal point where ever they a placed.

Care

Zantedeschia grow naturally in marshy areas although they are very hardy and adapt quickly able to grow in many soil types and habitats. Calla’s are extremely versatile and will perform in many situations, we recommend keeping the plant inside as a feature as they are very long lasting and will draw attention as a feature to any room. When the plant starts to look tired it is best placed outside in the garden in a cool location in a shaded area.  Strong but indirect sunlight with an optimum temperature of around 21 degrees Celsius suits them best. Watering should be done 2-3 times a week in spring and summer and 1-2 times a week in winter. Fertilizer should be ¼ diluted and can be given around every 3rd to 4th watering. If in an indoor situation watering once a week is ideal.

Remove flower stalk when they being to hang or darken and be sure to cut as low down as possible without cutting the leaf or ripping the stem. Calla should also be kept well clear for heating or cooling vents and high air flow areas. These plants will die down during the hot months of summer but do not panic as with most bulbous products they will come back again once the cooler weather sets in.
