Hi All, I bought 2 Arun Lily's in pots and now the leaves are turning yellow, is this the time that they die off ?
Where do I store the pots in the winter ? Thanks, Wilhelmina



Bit early for Arum lilies to be dying off how are you looking after them?

When did you get them and was it from a reputable GC? If you only got them recently I'd consider taking them back.

I bought them in May and they were beautiful, They were 20.00 each and yes it is a very good GC.
I keep thinking that I need to give them food perhaps, but what ????
Thank you so much for replying to my SOS.

Okay more Qs for you are they in full sun or a pretty sunny spot? Is the top of the tuber exposed? Is it all the leaves or just the older ones at the bottom of the plant?

Hi sorry to be so late, but yes they are in full sun, but keeping the pot very moist. Cut all the big leaves off now, but the new one turn very quick yellow again.
Tuber is not exposed.....
PS did give them food...

Sounds like you are actually over watering, this is in many ways worse than under watering as the plants roots can breath. so keep just moist but not very moist.
