Asiatic Lily leaves turning Yellow

My wife and I are attempting to grow a few Asiatic Lillie's indoors as she lives in an apartment. We have had them all of 3 days and the leaves at the bottom are turning yellow. After some searching I believe they have been over watered. We have a watering bulb in the pot, the first night after I moved them from the plastic pot to the new pot it drained the bulb in a few hours so I refilled it. Today she filled it again.

Am I right that they have been over watered and that the fix is to give them some epsom salts?

RE: Asiatic Lily leaves turning Yellow

Someone else may correct me but yes sounds like overwatering, they want to be moist but not wet. Don't think epsom salts will correct overwatering. Lilies are not happy houseplants, though you may be able to grow them on a balcony in a pot.
