Nature PhoChal Day 7: Earth Day and Calla Lilies

“Calla Lily Sproutling”

Happy Earth Day to you all! I hope that you are all going to get out and do some “earthy” stuff today! I am so excited beyond words this morning, to wake up and see the glorious sight above: my Calla lilies sprouted overnight, after just nine short days! I am such a proud flower mama right now! I think these lilies could not have picked a better day to make their entrance into this world!

So begins my journey with my Calla lily (which coincidently, is not actually a lily) and I can safely say that now that they have successfully started to grow. I am excited for future photo ops and the great thing is, I’ve been researching what to do to keep the lilies going year after year!

I received this beautiful Calla Lily kit for Easter, and thought that today would be a perfect day to start it, being that the weather is finally going to let up and be more like spring. I have never tried to grow a flower from seed (or bulb, as in this case) and I am very excited and nervous about it. I have no idea how long it should take for the lily to sprout, but once it does, I have a perfect place for it to get the 6-10 hours of daylight a day! For now, it has to just be in a bright area, not in direct sunlight.

So begins my venture with my Calla Lily! I not only look forward to having some new lilies soon, I look forward to the photo ops that shall accompany them! I have never seen these lilies before and I am curious as to how they smell, like if they have a strong floral fragrance like my Easter Lily did. Time soon shall tell!
