Q.crinum lilies have ends of their leaves drying out

Zone Central Florida, zone 9 | mespoppa added on July 9, 2015 | Answered

Our crinum lilies consistently have the ends of their leaves drying out. What’s the problem? We live in The Villages, FL. The garden area is irrigated twice a week. I see that they like moisture. I suppose they could like more than they’re getting, but could this be a lack of fertilizer or minerals? I’ve seen other varieties in the area that don’t appear to have the same problem.

The leaves drying and looking a little untidy is not that unusual.
You can increase watering but make sure the soil is not soggy, just moist.

I would trim away the dead material.
Do not apply any fertilizer at this time. Spring would be a better time to fertilize with an all purpose balanced fertilizer.
