Why does the calla get yellow leaves?

Leaves turn yellow and pull in

In almost all bulb plants you can observe that the leaves turn yellow and move in after flowering. This is a natural process by which the calla bulb gathers strength for the next flowering period.

If the leaves turn yellow or brown beforehand, there are almost always maintenance errors:

  • Location too sunny or too dark
  • Too little moisture during the flowering period
  • Substrate not rich in nutrients
  • Virus disease from polluted earth

Tips & Tricks

Use a clean, sharp knife to cut diseased leaves. Then clean it thoroughly so you don't infect more plants.
