Re: Calla hibernating

dear les,

years ago, i gave my parents a Z. elliotiana (the yellow species).  here is 
how they grow and bloom it yearly in nyc:

from may until it goes dormant, it grows outside in full sun, well watered, 
and as i said, it blooms yearly.  when it goes dormant, around october or so, 
it goes in the basement, where it is stored in its pot until next may.  so 
i;d say, don't bother shaking off the soil/cleaning unless you really have 
the time... as for temps, i understand they are native to south africa, so i 
don't see how 45-50 degrees would harm it (Caladiums in contrast are much 
more tropical).

hope this helps.
