Calla Lily Failed to Flower

I love calla lilies, so I was disappointed when mine came up, but didn’t bloom this spring. I fertilized them well, but the bulbs are a few years old. Could that be the problem?

Callas can last and flower for many years.  These bulbs are truly tuberous rhizomes that grow larger each season.   When dividing in spring, be sure to leave several growing points (eyes) per division.  Small divisions often produce leaves but no flowers.  Also monitor your fertilization schedule.  Too much nitrogen fertilizer that can result in beautiful leaves and no blooms.
