Hi there, The leaves on my calla lilly house plant are turning yellow and Im not sure if it is normal. I repotted them into a bigger pot about a month ago. The plant is on the window sill of my solarium getting east-south sun. Attached are a few pictures.

My first though is that the extra soil in the container that is not colonized with roots yet remains a little too wet.The symptoms look like root suffocation.

With these plants, moisture is good. But you want the top half inch to 1 inch to dry, thoroughly, between waterings. down past will need to remain moist, but not wet. This will ensure that the most important soil layer for beneficial microbes remains ideal, without being too dry to suit the moisture needs of the plant.

At this point it does not look like an infection. It could end that way if conditions remain unfavorable, however.

Here is an article that will help you to grow these in container:
