First year growing lilys and wondering if all the small green growths in the bottom of the cala lily flowers are new bulbs. They are about 1/4 inch round and in bunches of 10 to 30. Thanks for any help

Since you stated that the growths are at the base of the flower rather that the base of the plant, I am thinking that you are seeing fruit clusters
quote:
and in bunches of 10 to 30.
. Each little fruit (berry... will contain many seeds) Its been a long time but as I recall the berries will turn red as they ripen and when the frost hits, the stalk falls to the ground and the seeds are sown.

Like I said... been a long time so if I am wrong, someone please feel free to correct me! [flower]

Bill,
Does the Cala Lily flower produce seeds
that look like the Arum ones??

an orangish berry, *the cala berry maybe a different color??*
that has a bunch of little seeds inside???

Something in the ball park of this?
