Don't know what is going on ? I looked at the stem and it appears intact (no break or chew marks)
the only thing I could see different is no bulblets on the stem.

All the rest are looking normal.

Cinda: Welcome! I don't see much of anything wrong with your lily. It appears that it may be growing a little too fast; that's all. The fast growth and drooping leaves sort of go hand in hand with warmer weather and too much moisture (rain). It is a temporary condition and is most likely to occur just before they bud out. Yours appears to be ready to bud out soon. That's my opinion. Does anyone else have something to add?

"All the others" are the same lily? If they are not, then there is no relevance. Different lilies react and grow differently.

That's quite an abrupt growth change. If it doesn't seem normal, in other words, if you've actually never seen it happen before (think hard), then something has changed quite abruptly also. Any herbicide or pesticide application? flooding? Cultivation? Heat? .......
At any rate, there's probably nothing you can do about, unless you can pinpoint and alleviate the problem. It very well could be nothing, but the yellowing does point to some kind of stress.
