Best Locations For Growing Purple Calla Lily
Growing Calla Lilies indoors is a great option for those of us not located in hardiness zones 8-10. Surprisingly easy to grow, Purple Calla Lilies are great container plants. Place this potted plant near a bright window in your kitchen or living room, or use it to add drama to your cut-flower arrangements. Make sure to keep these toxic plants away from pets and children.
Purple Calla Lily Sunlight Requirements
Provide this plant with plenty of bright, indirect sunlight. Placing it near an east- or west-facing window would be perfect, or near a south window at a distance of a few feet.
Purple Calla Lily Care
The Purple Calla Lily prefers a porous, well-draining soil. When they are planted in containers, use high-quality, all-purpose potting soil. Calla Lilies like their soil to be kept moist, but not soggy. For this plant, provide plenty of bright, indirect sunlight.
Watering Purple Calla Lily
Purple Calla Lily should only be watered when the first few inches of soil are dry. These plants dislike being too soggy. Check the soil about once a week to see if it needs watering.
Feeding Purple Calla Lily
Upon planting, apply any well-balanced, slow-release fertilizer. In fertile soil that’s rich in organic matter, no other fertilizer is necessary. Too much nitrogen-rich plant food will encourage plenty of foliage growth at the expense of flowering. Avoid choosing a blend that is nitrogen heavy.
