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 sun porch 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 than 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 the plant from the pot, add gravel to the bottom of the planter, add perlite to the soil.

Don’t own a Peace Lily? But, you want one? You can purchase one on Amazon or at your local nursery.

      Hi! Yes, go ahead and cut off the brown leaves and blooms. It should rejuvenate and new blooms will grow – they are usually pretty tolerant plants. 🙂
