Peace Lily Problem

//Peace Lily Problem

We do not see any disease problem but there are a few cultural care tips that might help. Peace Lily plants do best indoors in bright, indirect light. We can’t see if there’s any natural light in this office setting, but most offices don’t provide enough for long term plant growth, and certainly not enough for flower production. Turn off all the lights in your office, and stand by your plant. Can you see the shadow of your hand on a white piece of paper next to the plant? If not, the plant is not getting enough light. Peace lilies need regular water and will flop dramatically if they get too dry. They bounce back but it weakens the plant. But do not allow the plant to sit in water as this may lead to root rot. Black or brown leaf tips sometimes develop when humidity is low or irregular watering practices; place your plants on a pebble tray with water place the pot on a brick so that it does not sit in the water to raise ambient humidity. Peace lilies are susceptible to salts in tap water which sometimes causes blackening of leaves. Try using distilled water (steam iron water).
