I agree with James - as its seems that the older leaves are showing this 
pigment disturbance and not the new leaves - the most plausible notion is 
that its a mineral deficiency??

A nutrient deficiency would be my last hopeful guess?

I dug this up ater noticing the slug/snail damaged leaves and virus (?) 
affected variegated leaves. The bulb and roots seemed otherwise healthy. I 
am spreading snail bait around my other plants as well as treating with 
imidacloprid. Do slugs/snails transmit virus or were they attracted to this 
plant perhaps because of its supressed immune level? My other 
healthy-looking plants do not seem to attract slugs and snails.…
