After the plant was brought from South Africa to Europe and North America, the flower became a popular flower of many symbols. Freud depicted the plant sexually and regarded the flower as having deeper meanings and interpretations than how people comprehend it consciously.

Calla lily is a flowering plant that can grow 3 feet tall and 2 feet wide. It can grow at cooler temperatures and can tolerate wet conditions. This plant can be grown as a marginal aquatic. Its preferred habitat is in streams and ponds or on the banks. Calla Lilies are one of the few house plants that thrive in wet, even soggy, potting mix. To maintain a constant supply of moisture, keep the saucer filled with water. Bloom usually shows between 8 and 16 weeks after potting, depending on the amount of sunlight the plant receives. In summer, move the potted plant outdoors to a spot in full sun. Re-pot once or twice during the growing season and bring indoors before frost. In areas where winter lows do not drop below 10°F, you can plant your Calla Lily in the ground in spring in an evenly moist or boggy location in full sun. To grow Callas outdoors, plant it after danger of frost has passed in full sun or partial shade (partial shade is required in the South and warm inland areas of the West unless the soil is constantly wet) and rich moist soil. Calla lilies purify the air around it and absorb carbon dioxide and release oxygen as part of the photosynthesis process
