The Q&A Archives: Lily of the Nile Yellowing

Question: Established Lily of the Nile plant is yellowing and the leaves are dying. What can I do?

Answer: It's natural for the oldest, outermost leaves to die off this time of year. If the entire plant is yellowing and dying, it could indicate root problems such as poor drainage. I'd cut away the dead leaves and wait until spring for a new growth spurt. New foliage should develop rapidly when the weather warms up and your plant should regain its healthy appearance.
