I asked about my trumpet lily before but now the bottom of the trumpet lily leaves are going brown and dying. I think it is going to start going up the plant. I put some fertilizer one week ago and haven't watered it since. What is wrong with it? I do not think that is is going into dormant.

Aside from watering and fertilizing issues, disease and insects can cause leaves to turn brown. Without being able to personally examine the plant for fungal spores or signs of insects, I really can't diagnose the problem. You can look at the leaves with a magnifying glass, both upper and lower sides, and look for tiny black or brown spots (fungal spores) or insects.

Best wishes with your lily!
