The Q&A Archives: Peace Lily Plant

Question: My peace lily plant's leaves doesn't seem to want to stand up. We have changed the dirt, fertized, watered, cleaned the leaves with rubbing alcohol, and nothing seems to help. It has new growth but it just seems like the leaves have no energy to stand up. HELP!

Answer: If your peace lily isn't getting enough light, it will flop over. Ditto if it has been over-fertilized, or if the bulb was started in an overly warm room. I think the best solution for your plant is to stake it upright (bamboo stakes work well).

Best wishes with your plant!
