RE: storing Callas

Well, I'm trying out a new email program on the work station, so Lord only knows if 
this is gonna work...but.

I grow my Callas in pots.  They winter in that very same pot under the bench (for the 
ones that go dormant) in the greenhouse where they get drenched every time the 
plants on the bench are watered.  They do not seem to mind.  The one I have that 
does not go dormant - in fact wants to grow in winter - stays on the bench and gets 
watered ...which I should have done 2 days ago...Oh Lawsy!..anyway, it blooms 
around Feb.

Since they seem to grow even in standing water, I do not think they want to get really 
dry over winter...
