I have 4 zantedeschia - black flowered ones - and one of them the leaves have started to go yellow and the flowers are dropping. I dont know why one is wilting and the other 3 are ok.



Sounds suspiciously like root rot. The colored varieties, including the black ones need better drainage than the white kind (Z. aethiopica).

Thank you Tugbrethil for your response. I will dispose of that one and repot the one that is in the same pot in case the same thing happens and make sure there is sufficient drainage
