Why Is My New Inca Lily Turning Yellow?

A few weeks ago I purchased a new tangerine, Tango Inca Lily plant from a good nursery. It has been in the ground about 3 weeks. The leaves are starting to yellow. Not all, but some. Am I watering it too much?? I am hoping you will have the answer for me. . I don’t want to lose this plant. Please advise and thanks so much!!

The plant may be suffering from transplant shock since it's newly planted. It will need time to acclimate to the new environment. I would make sure it has plenty of water and even a dose of fertilizer (at half strength). More often than not, plants will recover from this on their own.

I think you meant Alstroemeria. It will grow in zone 6-10. Some parts of Michigan are zone 6 while others are 5 or 4. It depends on where you are in Michigan.

Alstroameria

All my alstromerias are growing and abundant, but none have any buds so far. Why is this? They have always given dozens of flowers in past springs. But there don’t seem to be any this year. What has happened?

Do you fertilize these at least once per year? If not, I recommend doing so. It sounds like there is a lack of potassium and phosphorus in the soil.
