I planted a pink calla lily in a partially shaded Northern exposure. Soil is somewhat sandy and requires watering daily. Wondering if the watering is in excess and is this why the lilly leaves have yellow spots on them?

Zantedeschia rehmannii, the pink calla, should thrive in a partly shaded area with frequent watering, so the yellow spots may be a sign of a fungal disease. Remove the leaves if they're badly infected, to help prevent the spread of the disease, and also to increase air circulation around the plants.
