Problem: My Peace Lily isn’t blooming.
Cause: Not enough light.
Solution: Move it into a well-lit area or purchase a plant light. We have ours in our sunporch in front of a south facing window. We supplement it’s light with a plant light during the winter when there is are fewer hours of daylight. Be sure to set a timer (no more that 4 hours at a time) to avoid burning on the foliage.

Problem: Plant appears droopy & soil is dry & crumbly.
Cause: Not enough watering.
Solution: Water plant thoroughly & give it a nice pep talk!

Problem: Pale or “burnt” looking foliage.
Cause: Too much direct sunlight.
Solution: Move plant out of direct sunlight.

Problem: The plant collapses or looks incredibly droopy with moist soil.
Cause: Overwatering & not enough soil drainage.
Solution: Empty the saucer beneath the pot and let the soil drain. Remove plant from pot, add gravel to bottom of planter, add perlite to soil.
