Calla Lilies

I'm trying to grow these for the first time. Mine is potted and I have two full size leaves but they tend to lean quite a bit. It is in a east window til the temps get warmer and no chance of frost, then I'll bring out on the deck. Mine is yellow

Does it need to be supported?
How much sun? How often to water and how much?

Any info you can provide will be greatly appreciated.

I can't do any videos or a lot of searching online, due to limited bandwidth on Hughes was either that or dial up!

I haven't grown any a while. But had them in ground with grow through supports. They sure are pretty.

RE: Calla Lilies

I am probably posting too late, but, I have found that when I grow anything inside, you have to phase it into the sun. I had a few callas in pots and moved them outside in late spring last year and they did okay in pots, but I like to plant them in the ground - they get much larger and I get larger tubers (or rhizomes?) and have propagated more that way.
