A couple of weeks ago I received this Calla Lily as a gift from one of my students. Whenever I get a plant for a gift, I'm always very appreciative but also feel a sense of dread because I'm most likely going to kill it. I like plants, especially ones with flowers, but I'm terrible with them.
While I was cleaning up the kitchen after cooking this evening I realized that it's been two weeks and my Calla Lilly is looking good! It hasn't been droopy, or dry, or yellow, or let's face it, dead at all.
I did read that the look of death is imminent with this type of plant, no matter what. I'm glad I learned that because I'd probably chalk it up to my ineptitude and get rid of when it starts to yellow. I might even try to save the root system and replant in my front yard next year. We shall see.
