Zantedeschia (Calla Lily) cut flowers are curently outside the top 15 listing for volume of cut flowers traded on the FloraHolland clock, mainly due to lower than usual supply of imported flowers. Zantedeschia pots plants however are currently number 9 position for cumulative volume of house plants traded, with sales of 6.369.121 plants so far in 2012.

Keeping cut flowers perky for longer is probably the last thing a man taking Viagra would think of. But the drug designed to help revive his love life can have the same effect on a wilting bouquet. Apparently just one milligram of Viagra can give cut flowers another week of life. Men nursing concerns about their sexual performance may not be terribly excited about this discovery. Nevertheless, there may be some couples who are more excited about the drug's horticultural application than its principal use.
