What can I do? My Flame Lily is yellowing. I believe it’s been overwatered. It has only four leaves and they are all yellowing and tips softening. I inherited this from my landlord who passed away in February. Trying to help it flourish
2ft to light, indirect
8” pot with drainage
Last watered 3 months ago
Based on what you said, I would take it out of the current soil and check the roots to see if it has root rot. If it does, remove any rotted material. If the previous soil is wet, try to repot in new dry soil. You can rinse the roots with a hydrogen peroxide/water mixture as well.

If you can provide a photo we can help further. #
@PlantDaddyBH yellowing leaves usually is a sign of overwatering. Let the top 1/3 of the soil dry before watering.

I would also gently pull the plant out of the pot to check the roots. They should be firm and a whitish color.
