Dear Susan,
I live in Poland in zone 6b, so I must dig the tubers out in October and I plant them in April, so they are dormant about 6 months. They grow in the ground in pots while Z. aethiopica grows at the edge of a pond, with all the roots and rhizomes submerged.

The colored Zantedeschia  (that's for you, Marek) hybrids should be watered and then let dry out quite a bit.  They can't take the water amounts that Aethiopicas can.
Aethiopicas are very happy growing at the edge of water or in a bog, sometimes even in water- the hybrids would rot.

Your friends plant will turn yellow and die back, check the bulb at that point and let it rest for about 6 weeks before starting the growing cycle again.

The hybrids are summer growers, maybe that's why it's a little puny right now.  I forget where you live???
