I think calla stems are supposed to bend somewhat so the leaf is almost horizontal

maybe they are starting to go dormant? When did you start those seeds. I am curious where you go those starter packs, I want to try calla seed, have always loved the flowers but have never tried growing them before

Don't overwater callas - they can rot at the base of the stem. If you lightly pull on the bottom of the stem and it comes right up, it's because it got mushy from dampness.
But the leaves really do go sideways somewhat, and that is normal as Kennyso says.
What colors do you all have? I love the sunset colored ones and the pinks, lavendars and yellows.
Beautiful plants !

I have two a purple that has tall arrow type leaves solid green that one tends to stand tall.

The yellow one has huge spotted leaves that one has always flopped over the leave are just so big I just thought that is what they are suppose to do.
This is the one that flops.
