RE: yellow leaves on my cala lily

Probably too much water and fertilizer. Did you plant it as a bulb or was it purchased already potted and sprouted?
Wonder if lifting it.cutting off the rotted part and repotting in good new potting soil would help it recover.
Check GardenWeb for a bulb forum and see what they suggest.
