I hate to put Tom Croat on the spot, but behind the Climatron is a
pond loaded with Calla palustris and I have liberated a few seeds in my
time. Maybe he could send out his henchmen and transport some down your
way. I belive now is the time.
In this pond it grows around the edges with its 'toes' in the water
and 'ankles' just above. I've grown it in a metal wash tub which fills up
with rain or hosing and slowly drains/ evaporates away. I guess this would
be called a bog and it can certainly take some serious flooding, but
probably doesn't want to take much drought.
I grow Symplocarpus in a 2 gal pot standing in a tray of water
(summer and winter) and I bet Calla would do likewise.
