Q.Variegated Ginger Lily

Anonymous added on March 12, 2014 | Answered

I bought 3 variegated ginger lilies. Two of them have developed brown spots or new developing leaves are brown. What is causing this? Also, I thought variegated ginger lilies were a deeper green/yellow, but the ones I bought are a faded yellow/green. Why is that? Thank you for your assistance.

It sounds like your plants have a fungus. Treat them with a fungicide. The off coloration is due to the fact that they are under stress from the fungus. They should return to a normal color when the fungus is gone.
