Brown spots on lily leaves

Post by Richard Li » Sat, 12 Jul 1997 04:00:00



Hi,

I'm having a problem with many small brown spots appearing on my lily leaves.
These eventaully go right through and the leaves die. I did not have this
problem last year (I had one tropical lily at the time, this year I have
tropicals, hardy, and wild). My water hyacinths are doing just great. They
have become huge, with leaves almost as big as lilies, and are flowering
profusely right now.

Could this be a fertilizer problem? This year, I put some Garden tabs into
each pot. Last year, I don't believe I put fertilizer near the roots, just
adding liquid iron supplement.

Any help would be appreciated.

Regards,
Rick

I doubt it. I've used three tabs per 12" pot  for 3 summer months in a row
for years and had no such problem.

If you have a fountain that spatters drops of water on the leaves, these
drops can act as tiny magnifying lenses & burn the leaves just under the
drops.

Nope! The lily is in a large flower pot with no aeration or fountain.
The lilies in my 2 other pots are doing OK, as well as in my pond.

THese holes almost look eaten through, but I don't see any bugs.

My Koi are always pestering my lilies, looking for some yummy bits that
have gone under the leaves. Eventually they make holes in the leaves just
by sucking on them.
