The Calla is originally a South African marsh plant and comes from the family of the Arum family (Araceae). This family consists of monocots. The flowers are collected in a fleshy spike surrounded by a bract. The spathe is often attractively colored.
In 1725 the Calla was discovered by the then European governor. He sent some specimens to Europe, where it has become a favorite room and patio plant.
The tubers of the Calla's coming from California. These tubers are two years old and are potted in the nursery. The cultivation time depends on the species and the period in which there is planted and varies between 10 and 16 weeks. The Calla is available during the period from February to December.
The Calla Lily is an easy plant that has no special requirements. The Calla grows best at temperatures between 10 and 20 degrees Celsius. In a not too warm room keep the flowers fresh longer. The Calla also tolerates or lower temperatures, but will not grow anymore.
He comes into its own in a bright spot with a moist, well-drained soil. That means two to four times a week, a strong dash of water until the plant blooms. No water must remain in the pot.
