Due to remodeling I lost the plant tag for this plant. It was blooming when I got it. The tag said to put outside during warm weather. When plant died down to keep root bulb in peat moss and keep in cool Place, which I have done. Now I see some Anthurium plants kept as house plants year round. Is this what I have and What would you do?

Hi -- That's a Calla Lily. You can find quite a bit of info in the database, starting here: Callas (Zantedeschia)
I garden for the pollinators.

Your Calla Lily will eventually want to go dormant @Plantainia. When it does don't worry. Cut off the dead foliage and put the pot in the basement or in a closet and leave it alone until late spring.

Anthurium aren't guaranteed to have a similar flower thing at all times, but when it does make them, it's usually a fairly long-lasting event. I would recommend adding one if you have room for more plants.

Thanks to SongofJoy I remembered my plant was a Calla Lily. I did what the plant label suggested. I removed the dirt and stored the corms in peat moss keeping it in the coolest place I have in the house. It's a utility room wall adjacent to the garage. The garage is too cold. We had ice in the bucket that held our Douglass Fir before we brought it in to decorate.

I checked the corms and they would be ready to sprout whenever planted. Thank you all for your input.
