My friend recently asked me, “What’s wrong with my Peace Lily? She isn’t blooming and she looks so sad!” I gave her some advice and within a few weeks her Peace Lily is thriving, blooming, and overall, a very happy houseplant!
Does this sound like you? No worries, I can help!
Do you feel like it’s taking forever to get your Peace Lily to bloom? Are you worried that you might kill it before it even has a chance to boom? Maybe you’re beginning to wonder if you really have what it takes to keep a houseplant alive.
Today, I’m talking sharing my fail-proof plan to NOT kill your Peace Lily houseplant and keep your Peace Lily Blooming! They don’t call me a #crazyplantlady for nothing!
MY FAIL-PROOF NO KILL PEACE LILY PROBLEM SOLVER
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.
Don’t own a Peace Lily? But, you want one? You can purchase one on amazon or at your local nursery.
