Overwatering is all too easy with the Wood lily. It doesn’t require a lot of water in the first place and overwatering can lead to bulb rot. Some symptoms include:
-Mushy bulb
-Spotted, flopping stems
-Droopy flowers
-Yellowed stalk
It is normal for yellow leaves to develop when Wood lily has reached the end of their blooming period. However, if the leaves turn yellow before the flowers have bloomed, it is a sign of over watering.
Bulb rot is common and cannot be reversed, unfortunately. If you catch it early on, you will need to dig up the bulb and carefully remove the rotten portions. From there, you should remove all the soil that the plant grew in. If you use a pot, thoroughly disinfect it and any tools you use to avoid spreading the fungus. For outdoor plants, you should plant them in a different location.
There’s not as much of an issue if you underwater this plant. Of course, you don’t want the soil to dry out entirely, but it’s much easier to solve an underwatering problem than an overwatering one. Some signs that your plant is underwatered include:
-No blooms
-Sagging, wizened stalks
-Browning around the edges of the flower petals
If you have given your Wood lily too little water, then do not panic. It has a level of drought tolerance. Once you have realised, give it a good drink but do not saturate the surrounding soil. Just make sure it is moist.But do not give them too much and overwater them, you just need to let the soil to be mosit. Extended periods in water can lead to root rot and fungus growing on the bulb. The fungus can cause serious damage to the bulb which is noticed through spots that appear on the leaves and buds. The tips of the leaves may also discolor and die.
