How To Keep Your Peace Lily Blooming


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!

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.

      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. 🙂
