Indoor Calla Lillies. For the past few years i have kept bulbs and repotted, however, each year they seem to bolt and grow extremely high and spindly. any clue to why? I have tried different locations and potting medium.

They look etiolated and short of nitrogen. This suggests they're not getting enough light, and sunlight in particular - an east or west facing windowsill is ideal. More info here, in case you've also got temperature problems and incorrect soil ph
