Developing my knowledge all the time. I love growing plants: barely any space on my windowsills, nor on my patio as it's full of pots. #renting.

I’ve just potted up my #callalily as I noticed it had grown shoots in my cupboard. However I don’t know if i should keep it indoors till weather warms up or if it would be ok outside? #advice #calla #lily

The first time I had some, I left them outside but they went all mushy. These ones I over wintered inside but they started sprouting before I realised and just planted them up in case! Many weeks later they’ve sent up new green sprouts!! 😁 @jerseylily

#advice just checked on my #calla #lily #callalily and saw these sprouts #newgrowth. Is it time to pot it up? Will it be ok outside even though there’s still a bit of a frost risk? 14/04/19 Also am I holding it the right way round or has it grown new roots and that’s the bottom?

comment
bluefox23

I have these two that are joined together and another one that broke off when I dug them up. I bought these around this time of year last year so think I’ll pot them up and see what happens. Not had a lot of luck with Callas before so if these don’t do anything I’m not going to bother again. @ublaszko @lesliecole49

I left mine in pot last year and they came back probably luck but I would pot them up but don't over water them

comment

Thanks @Keely Will do that in next day or so. I am right in thinking that it is a shoot not a root that has grown?

comment
ublaszko

I bought three varieties this year to give them a try. I wasn't even going to bother because they don't do well in our winters but I thought I'd just treat them as annuals. My last year's dahlia doesn't look to be alive.

comment
bluefox23

I really like the flowers but like dahlias, just a bit of a hassle! Yep I’m not convinced my dahlia is alive either! @ublaszko I’ve got some dahlia seeds that have germinated so might just focus on them and treat them as annuals.

@ublaszko @bluefox23 still time for dahlias ladies don't give up on them in North too so they take a bit of getting going some of mine still not showing just don't be tempted to over water them as that can rot the tubers with it still been cold we need the hot spell to get them going 👍😄

I potted mine up indoors above a windowsill 2 weeks ago so I thought there would be some sign of growth by now. The new ones have sprouted and are a few centimetres tall but the last year's one isn't even showing any buds. @Keely

I like dahlias. I never thought I would bother with them because they need overwintering but I loved my birthday dahlia.

Hmm! Me and calla lilies don't seem to get on! This has been like this since a week after the flowers developed! They are really firm but drooping! #advice what's the best thing to do with it? Chop the flower stalks off? Leave the leaves to do their job? When do I take it out for the winter? 🤷‍♀️😊 #callalily

Ok so a third flower coming up but the other two have bent over. A few leaves look like they’re curling. I’ve used water meter to check moisture but concerned I’ve over or under watered. #advice-needed #advice 20/07/18 #callalily

Soft stems? Could it be too much fertiliser? Just thinking aloud because I had tulips which had long bendy stems and faded colours. But I've never grown calla lilies before so would be interested to hear from others. ☺

I have found with callalilies the flower stem will grow and bend naturally. I think it dose that so when It sets seed it's away from the parent plant.

@alan1111 Thanks. 👍🏼 ok hopefully it's ok then. Last year I thought they'd done this because bulb was going rotten so hopefully it's natural. 🤞🏼🙂

One of my favorite lilies, for sure!! I can relate to the renting and potting. It just hurts to much to leave to much by planting in the ground!!!! The sad thing is, at least here in Texas....things grow faster and seem to just do much better planted directly in the ground but potted plants do wonderful too👍🏻🤗🤗😊💕

I feel your pain. I dug out everything I'd put in, in the first rented house. Left them in pots in the 2nd, Had 2 truck loads when i moved them to my permanent home where they stayed in pots until I dug out borders bit by bit 😂

@Jasonsparkes1 At first I thought I had a root growing upwards, but that turned sideways I think, just to left of bit of bulb showing through. The other bit middle of pic, does look more pointy and shoot like. Was so excited, just had to snap it. Will get better pics as it (hopefully) develops! 👍🏼🤞🏼
