Hi, i have potted one childsiana and the giant white calla about two and half weeks ago but so far non is sprouting. I place both pots on my sunny window sills. The temp. in my house is around 68-75. Soil is half peat moss, one fourth vermiculite and perlite. What should i do to speed up the process? I am just afraid the longer it sit in the soil, the higher chance the bulbs will rot. thanks.

Put a heating pad under the pot and withhold water.

Thanks cactusfreak for your advice. i don't have a heating pad at home. do you know what else would work?

If you have the type of refrigerator that gets hot on top put the pot on the refrigerator. Or if it blows hot air out at the bottom grille put it in front of the grille.
Anyplace that is nice and warm.
Your sunny window probally gets really cold at night so at least move it out of the window at night.
