Well, I finally got some Zantedeschia a year ago and they are now flowering. I had heard they could be tough to flower on some forums, but they seem pretty easy after they settled in for a year. The first was a gift from a friend for a trade and it is some hybrid that I have no clue about:

And this is a Zantedeschia elliottiana that I got from my friend in India that I get tons of plants from:

They also seem to multiply like rabbits so I guess in another year or two I will be trying to get rid of them :D Dan

They are lovely! I really like the leaves on Zantedeschia elliottiana. They look like they are splashed with silver.

Hi Foxy, Yeah, the leaves are the nicest thing to be honest. I have one other one from my friend that has not flowered yet, but I am hoping before the end of the summer it will. I can not remember what it was supposed to look like, but I think standard white......we shall see :D Dan
