Zantedeschia aethiopica, commonly known as calla lily and arum lily, is a species of flowering plant in the family Araceae, native to southern Africa in Lesotho, South Africa, and Eswatini.

 

When growing them in the garden, in the shade, in well-drained soil rich in humus. If you're growing your Arum in a pot, inside, they do well in light soil that is mixed with sand, as well as lots of light.

 

Water sparingly at the beginning and then more regularly once flowers have appeared, until the end of the blooming season. Arum's grows very well adjoining a body of water, like all bulbs that bloom in summer, water in case of prolonged dry spells or heat waves.

 

High nitrogen fertiliser should be applied to arum lily plants fortnightly when the plants are in active growth but withhold application during flowering of arum lily plants. A high potassium fertiliser can be applied once a week after flowering.

 

Thrips and aphids are the main pests attacking arum lilies. Control is important to prevent the spread of viruses and fungi. 

 

This plant can be toxic to cats and dogs if eaten.
