I hybridized my Callas then grew the seed and here's the results.

I've always loved callas, and apart from my first year of growing them have never had a great deal of success. Lot of leaves but not many blooms.
Yours are lovely.

Yes yours are lovely otnorot.
I started some from seed a few years ago and only had one that bloomed the rest are leaves like BBQ said.

Do you fertilize yours to get them to bloom?

Maryjanej I grow all my callas in pots and I use soiless mix and then put in a small amount of sheep manure to top up the pot and lots of water.
