Propagation of Zantedeschia 'Hercules' (Giant Calla)?
I was at Strybing (SF Botanical Garden) a couple days ago. The Giant Calla Lilies, Zantedeschia 'Hercules', are doing well:
(The flower at the center was just at eye level, so maybe 5 1/2 feet.)
I picked up a 1 gallon plant in their store for $8. Actually the plant had been there for several weeks, I think.
One of the first things I like to do when I get a new plant is to propagate it, if possible. I removed the two smaller offsets. A few little bulbs (about 7) fell off as well. One of the offsets had a few bulbs attached as well. At first I left them, but I was packing a box for a friend, so I decided to send those. I potted up the two offsets with leaves.
My question is: how do I deal with the little bulbs (on the left in the above photo)? Will they start growing on their own if planted, or do I need to do something to break dormancy?
