How To Plant
Planting the Zantedeschia Aetheopica is simple, all they require is soil, some sun and plenty of water.
Choose a spot in your garden that receives partial shade or filtered sunlight. The Zantedeschia Aetheopica thrives in well-draining soil, so make sure to prepare the planting area accordingly.
Prior to planting, add organic matter such as compost or well-rotted manure. This will provide the bulb with the necessary nutrients for optimal growth.
Dig a hole that is approximately twice the depth of the bulb. Place the bulb with the pointed side facing up and cover it with soil, ensuring that the top of the bulb is just below the soil surface.
Space the Zantedeschia Aetheopica bulbs around 30cm apart to allow for their natural growth and development.
After planting, give the bulbs a thorough watering to settle them in. Once the plant emerges, water regularly. Avoid letting the soil dry out completely.
In colder climates, where frost hits hard, it's advisable to lift the bulbs before the first frost. Otherwise they are quite hardy. Cut the frost damaged foliage down in autumn.
Whether planted in beds, borders, or containers, these bulbs are sure to captivate with their majestic white flowers. Perfect for cut arrangements or as a focal point in your garden, their long-lasting blooms are a sight to behold. They may also flower twice in the year. Once in late spring and again in early autumn.
Order your Zantedeschia Aetheopica bulbs along as a structural focus point. Divide them every 4 years.
