About 5 years ago I bought 3 Zantedeschia (Calla) Lillies. The first year they thrived. Since then I haven't had a single bloom. They have multiplied and multiplied and I have now got them in three separate terracotta pots, every year they produce masses of beautiful folliage but not one bloom. Help!



Can I ask if you feed them, and if so, what with and how often? And are these inside the house or outside in the garden?

I change the soil each year for mine, I let them dry out in greenhouse then re-pot with fresh compost in the spring, works each time.

Sorry to question you like this, but what variety of Zantedeschia are they? If you don't know, do they have spotted leaves? And you are 100% certain they're Zantedeschia I suppose?
