zantedeschia 'aethiopica' (calla lily white giant)
Okay, a clue when I got these tubers of the name "giant" should have told me something... but it didn't. (duh?)...I have 3 of this growing, I started earlier (mid Feb?)in hopes for Easter bloom. I was attracted to them b/c they are a perennial for a change in my zone (zones 6-10) and Fragrant. Though "fragrant" doesn't always mean a good fragrance... we'll see. Anyway, they are growing like they are on steroids. I just repotted 6 " pots with top growth of about 6" to see the roots were massive and getting bound. They were each repotted into hanging basket sized pots. (the tubers were an indication I guess, 3-4" diameter). I don't want these in huge huge containers, though it's been my experience that taller plants need bigger pots. Eventually, could I root prune them or would that hurt them? The roots were so thick, prettty healthy and white.I also have some wierd thing about hating severly potbound plants...
I've had them inside house, maybe if I put on sunporch where it can get cool at night they'll slow a bit. Even though they are "perennials", I doubt I can put them out if a frost comes without the frost kiling them, as they were started inside.
Anyone ever this grow(larger type I suppose)in pots?
At this rate, by the time the grounds workable and no frosts, the holes would need to be quite large.
Are these root prunable?
Should I just give in with time and keep upsizing their containers?
Any thoughts, please let me know! THANKS!!
