Is it normal for lily leaves to turn black once flowered?
Several of my precious lilies are doing this on the leaves. They finished flowering a few weeks ago. I am wondering whether this is a normal part of their beginning to die down back into the bulb again, or whether it is DOOM. They are all grown to about 3 feet tall, in quite big pots of 16" diam. Is it root cramp? Should I give up trying to grow these, as I have no ground to plant them in, only this method of pot cultivation and do not have room for pots of a bigger size at all. They are 'Regale' and a similar size lily called 'African Queen'.
