callas not blooming, what can I do?

Hi - I just got a pot of calla bulbs, snagged from a sale - unmarked. I have no idea, the type they are.
There are about 6 bulbs planted about 2 - 1/2 inches deep,
in a medium size 8 inch pot.
The leaves are about 4 inches wide and 4 inches long.
Shaped like a heart, but round at the bottom?
Have to envision it, I guess. So, can anyone tell me when they might bloom or what type they might be.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you, so much. tina_2

Thats a lot of bulbs in one small pot. Callas don't like to bloom if they are too close together.
Do the leaves have spots on them?
