3. Recut Calla Lily Flower Ends. Cut at least 1/4 inch off of flower stems. Place immediately in water. Cut as much as you need to fit vase or arrangement.

4. Arrange Calla Lily Flowers in vase by spreading the stems symmetrically. Use clean water. Water can be changed every 2-3 days to lengthen the life of the flowers. 5. After 3-5 days at room temperature, calla lily flowers should fully open. White callas are often displayed by themselves, but can be spiced up by additional greens.
Our white calla lily flowers should last 7-10 days.
Additional Notes: There may be a curve to the callas when they arrive. This is normal, however, this can be minimized by turning box over and leaving for 12 hours before opening and processing flowers. Also, after processing, leave curve to the outside of the bucket and they will naturally straighten up toward the center of the bucket. If the curve is to the center of the bucket, the curve of the stem can even become more pronounced.
