peruvian lily

Does anyone know the reason why my peruvian lily leaves are going yellow. The flowers are fine but the leaves are yellow

    Perhaps the plant is having to give up most of its nutrients to the flowers at the expense of the leaves? Do you feed your alstroemerias? I know that they are quite hungry plants and partial to lots of fertile organic matter.

    I keep giving my alstroemeria (a small 30cm high pot-based variety) a liquid tomato feed once a week and it's doing splendidly. Is yours in a pot or in the ground?

    There in the ground and I do not feed them. I do have tomato feed at home

    I'd give it a tomato feed then Marc - as it's liquid based, it gets to work pretty quickly and you should notice an improvement within a couple of weeks. The tomato feed will also promote more flowering.
