  Zantedeschia 'Green Goddess'
From: "Sue Zunino" <suez at Northcoast.com> on 1998.06.02 at 07:36:13(2221)
Dear Aroiders,

I have access to fruit from Z. 'Green Goddess', but I don't know when to
collect it. I don't think it is ripe just yet. Is there anyone who can
tell me what color they should be when they are ready to collect, and does
anyone have information on the best way to germinate the seeds? Also, is it
necessary to keep the seeds damp until they are planted?

Thank you for any help,
Sue Zunino

Sue,

Green.

Just like Arisaema, the Deno method.

>is it necessary to keep the seeds damp until they are planted?

No.

Last year, some kind soul here offerred to ship calla lilies to other
aroiders. I forget the name of the variety, recalling only that they were
supposed to be white and tall.

I purchased two of them and after growing them under lights this past
winter, planted them in the garden this spring. One of them is flowering,
the others are growing well.

Do zantadeschia consistently produce tubers? Will I be able to winter
these in a bag rather than in pots? Indoor space will be more limitted
than ever this next winter. I had very mixed luck with my colocasia
producing tubers last summer (probably a result of Long Island's short
growing season).
