Zantedeschia are best planted in a well-drained soil of clay or loam within a neutral, acidic or alkaline PH balance. They are best positioned in an area of full sun or part shade. Zantedeschia are well suited to flower beds and borders as well as containers within Mediterranean, cottage and informal style gardens.

Plant your bulbs so that the pointed tip is slightly above soil level. Water thoroughly to settle your bulbs into place.
Care will depend on whether you have a hardy or tender variety. For hardy varieties, they should be watered freely during summer, keeping soil cool and moist in periods of drought. You may wish to feed every 2 weeks with a balanced liquid fertiliser to increase blooms and foliage quality. Provide an annual mulch in autumn with well-rotted compost. For tender varieties, feed fortnightly when the foliage is in active growth, refraining from further feed when the plants are in flower. Water when the soil becomes dry to the touch.
It is possible to propagate Zantedeschia by division in spring.
