Hi All

I was wondering if anyone hear could help assess the problem I am having with some newly planted Bush Lily plants I live in Southern California,and have planted them in an area that receive mostly open shade -- a bit of morning sun as well. I bought all the plants at different Home Depots. I planted them with new soil, and they have been in the ground for about three weeks or so.

The problem: on a few of the plants I am getting these brown spots. The spots starts out small and pale, expands and turns brown, then usually stops. The new leaves that emerge from the crown are particularly affected. I don't think it is sun scorching because they receive only a small duration of direct light, and as you can see in one of the pics, a spot is forming way down at the base of an emerging leave before it even is exposed to sun.

Not all plants are affected yet, but enough for me to wonder what's up. I water moderately. I see no noticeable insects.

Could it be a fungus? Perhaps a fungus called botrytis?

Any ideas or recommended remedies?

Thanks!

It looks like a clivia to me, but I'm not sure about the spots.

LOL Maybe that is because Bush Lily is the common name for Clivia.

I've never grown one (my zone is too cold) but the spots do look a lot like diseases you might see on some lilies and amaryllis. There's not much information available on diseases for them since they seem to be on the whole pretty resistant. Wish I could be more helpful.
