    So I need to bring these callas in soon for overwintering but I am waiting to harvest the seeds. This is my first time harvesting seeds and Im not sure when they are mature.

    Thank you

    What I have done to collect calla seeds:
    I wait till I can feel the berry soft, then I squeeze it and a seed pops out

    I don't grow even a single calla lily!!!! But I think that they are beautiful. They poop out here really fast in the heat.

    I always wondered about when the seed is ripe as well. I've been lucky to just leave the plant alone and it self seeds for me. Although I would be interested in knowing when the right time is.

    Where my calla lily is, next to the east wall of my house, protected, they come back year after year bigger and stronger and baby ones show up also. I would like to learn more, to get more of the colored callas.
