Hello! This is my first garden, and I'm still learning and making mistakes as I go of course. But, my husband and I bought a few calls lily plants at a local nursery with gorgeous colorful cones in March. It's now June and they have no more colorful blooms, but seed pods growing out of them that have weighted them into the dirt. Pods are still green and firm. Does this mean my plant is done and I need to harvest the seeds and then dig up the plant, or can I leave them where they are and continue to care for them and then in the spring after dormancy they will come back and I don't need the pods?
I have 2 plants and they are in the areas of the yard that get morning sun....don't know if that matters or not.
Thanks for you help!

Cut off the pods, let the plants do their thing. I am in a cold zone, so they have to come in and go dormant. From a blog of gardeners in Texas
'Calla lilies are usually hardy here for us. They do not have to be planted near standing bodies of water, but will thrive in fairly moist soil. The smaller florists' varieties are better as houseplants, larger varieties outside, preferably where they will receive sun in the morning, shade in the afternoon.'

i'm pretty OK today, how are you? ;^)
