Hi, i received a potted calla lily as a gift, its currently in bloom in a relatively small pot. I would like to re-plant it to a larger pot and grow it indoors. Can I re-plant now or should I wait until it stops blooming? Also what is a good soil for Callas? And generally would appreciate any advise on re-planting, I'm new to gardening. Thank you in advance!

Hi Zina,
Callas like well draining soil, I would wait until the plants are in dormancy to transplant to a larger pot, with that being said I have transplanted Callas while there are in flower with no bad effects.
