    Can we have a photo showing green blobs?

    They sound like seed pods to me, mine has the same thing going on.
    I guess it's because of the hot summer, I didn't notice any last year.

    I've had the same (also from Aldi callas) - they're seeds - I cut a few off yesterday but I'll see if there are more to take a photo.

    Debs, yours are cannas, whereas I *think* Dll's and mine are callas (Zantedeschia) - mine are certainly 'big green blobs' too!

    Photo of the 'green blobs' in my calla lillies (Zantedeschia).
     


    Would be interested to hear if anyone has successfully grown the seeds from these in the uk.

    Answering my own query... Yes!
    My seeds have sprouted 😀.


    It might be a couple of years before they reach flowering size but I'm happy that my experiment was successful.
