This lovely, elegant calla used to be Georgia O’Keeffe’s favourite plant. The American artist used the plant as a symbol in many of her paintings. The plant is originally from South Africa, and used to be considered a fairly boring, old-fashioned houseplant. Recently, the calla made a spectacular comeback thanks to her neat, long shapes and lush flowers, especially when combined with a modern or unique flower pot. During the summer, your calla can also be placed outside, cheering up your garden of balcony.
Water your calla once a week, and add some fertiliser every now and then. If the leaves start dripping, you’ve given your plant too much water.
Place the calla in a light, warm spot without direct sunlight. If you want to keep your calla outdoors, make sure to avoid direct sunlight to keep the leaves from burning.
