Floppy Calla

MegBug(10 SoCal)June 6, 2012

I was given a potted calla lily as a gift and kept it in my semi-dark living room for a few months, but once it stopped flowering the leaves kind of folded under on themselves (resembling upside-down taco shells) and then began to flop over...they stayed green but the plant has started to look like a mop. Can I plant it outside?

you need to acclimate it first you cant just bring it outside after being inside all that time with the a/c and dark room. more light fist then outside shade then in the ground. good luck
