|I have a calla lilly and one of the flowers is dying and leaning down. Can I cut the dead flower off or should I wait until it falls off? The stem is also leaning down.

|Go ahead and cut off the faded flower and its stem. Calla's go into a resting period after flowering, so expect the leaves to yellow and then die. Stop watering when this happens and cut away the dead leaves. When it has finished resting new foliage will sprout and you can resume watering on a normal schedule. Good luck with your plant!
