Lily care?
My neighbor gave me this calla lily because she was afraid she’d kill it and I am not sure what to do with it! Will it live happily in a pot? Will the flowers fall off and regrow? Does it look ok? 🌺
it looks pretty good to be honest! not a expert on lilles but i think you should have nothing to worry about !

Keep the soil moist, but not soggy.
Provide bright, indirect light.
Apply liquid fertilizer monthly while in flower.
Keep away from heating and A/C vents.
Reduce watering when the plant enters dormancy (November)
Cut the leaves off at soil level once they've died.

Make sure you pot it in a pot that has drainage.
@KikiGoldblatt okay, so not too much different from my non flowered friends! I need to get a new pot because this foil around the plastic pot is so not cute 😂
Once the flower dies for the season let the leaves continue to get some sun to “recharge” and then you can repot the bulb in a slightly larger pot so it can back year after year! I have potted calla lilies outside in my gazebo and on my front steps. So pretty when they come back - mine come back towards the end of the summer the following year.
