I also grow them in pots and other than more frequent watering and feeding they seem to like more sun. I should have asked earlier, when you write fading, do you mean the flower or the foliage? The flowers will fade and turn green on the outside and eventually on the inside as they get older. Unless you want seed you can/should cut them off at this point.

After nickle size hail and 50 mph winds my callas are popping, this after planting out mid-May to early June. Picasso is first in bloom, one actually started to bloom in the basement. Yellow next then the albomaculatas, largest tubers first. The pinks and Schwarzwalder (which I got from Susan this year), are putting up lots of green. The aethiopicas, started indoors, are getting quite large but took a beating due to the hail and wind. Posting pics soon.
