Lily, from the Latin Lílium, refers to the popular bulbous plants from the Liliaceae family or Liliaceae. This flowering plant is grown as a room and garden crop in most countries, including Russia, but quite often problems can arise during the cultivation process. To minimize the negative consequences for the lily, it is necessary not only to determine the cause of the lily's disease in a timely and correct manner, but also to know what needs to be done in each particular case.
Lilies are among the fairly simple to maintain and unpretentious plants, so experienced amateur gardeners do not have problems with this bulbous perennial. However, there is always a risk of plant disease, and, if the lilies have turned yellow or stained with leaves, and their turgor has decreased or twisting is observed, parameters such as soil composition or regime of irrigation measures should be adjusted.
Quite often, decorative flowering plants of Lílium are affected by diseases or are attacked by various plant parasites, which also negatively affects their appearance and vitality. There are several reasons why leaves turn yellow on wilderness crops, and the preservation of the health of a decorative indoor or garden plant depends on the most rapid and correct determination of the causes of such violations.

Changing the appearance of a lily is not always associated with damaging factors. Quite often, an ornamental plant suffers as a result of improper care, including non-compliance with diet and watering. Some of the most common problems caused by breaches in growing technology include the following:
No less problems can cause a lack of iron in the soil, or chlorosis, which is especially noticeable on young leaves of lily. In this case, the aerial part of the plant acquires uncharacteristic yellowness. Deviation can occur when growing lilies on calcareous soils with a high level of acidity or when the soil is waterlogged. To correct the situation, it is necessary to carry out root or foliar fertilizing with iron.
Another reason for the change in color and appearance of Lílium leaves is an insufficient or excessive amount of nitrogen, therefore, when choosing fertilizers, one should carefully consider their composition and strictly follow the feeding scheme recommended by the decorative culture growing technology. If agricultural technology is fully observed, the lily will be healthy and beautiful.
