|The new bulbs are very small. I have never tried to grow calla's let alone mini's. How far apart, How deep? |
I would like a nice tight pot of them.
Well since no was able to post. I planted them 2'' apart and 3" deep wish me luck

|I planted my tiny bulbs I got from China. I guess I don't know what the leaf looks like for the mini. Do you?|

|They probably would look like these images that came up when I googled mini Zantedeschia: |
They look like the regular callas, just smaller. I don't know if anyone on this forum is growing them; I have grown the larger ones. Three inches deep might be a little too deep but I really can't say for sure. You might try posting on the bulb forum here and see if anyone is growing them. This forum is for the genus Lilium while the bulb forum covers many of the lesser grown bulbs.
I hope they do well for you, I do love callas!

|Thanks I will look the other forum up. The leaves are so new and tender. I will just have to be patient.|

Hello, first post here, I also ordered some calla lilies from China, the bulbs are extremely small. It's been about two months and this how they look, I'm going to transplant them to a pot today and leave them outside to get more sun. For a while I was doubting myself if they were calla lilies as the leaves don't look like callas.

|Hello, foxtrot01 and to NGA!|
I am not able to tell you what those seedlings are, but I CAN tell you what they are not: callas (Zantedeschia sp.). I hope you were not scammed by those unscrupulous sellers that do not hesitate to Photoshop their pictures offering things such as roses with a different colour on each petal, strawberries in every colour of the rainbow, blue and white Liliums, etc.
Anyway, you will more likely get an accurate ID of your seedlings if you have your enquiry moved to the 'Plant ID' forum (I am requesting this for you).

|Yes mine look like your plants. Just as droopy. The seeds produced well. I will leave them in the pot to see what they are. Maybe they will come up next year. I don't think they will bloom. Live and learn good thing they were cheap.|

|Please be careful if you decide to grow them - they could happen to be invasive weeds - and confine them until 100% identified.|

|Never thought of that Thanks|
