Answer: Since callas prefer plenty of moisture I would recommend a plastic pot because they holdmoisture longer and you can always slip it inside a more decorative pot if you wish. The pot size is determined by the plant size at the time you plant it and may need to be increased when it grows larger during the season or from year to year. Initially you want to be sure the roots can fit quite comfortably into the pot and allow for a bit of growth, but you do not want it to be so huge that the container is totally out of visual scale with the plant, either. It is better to err on the large side than the small side, though, as smaller containers tend to dry out rather quickly in the heat of the summer. To begin I would suggest planting one rhizome to a six inch pot, planted about two inches deep. Enjoy your callas!
