My peace lily is doing poorly. New leaves and some older ones turn brown. It does not receive direct sun and the other one that I have near it is doing well. What is wrong?

Browning leaves can indicate water stress or can be a result of dry indoor air. Peace lilies are relatively easy to care for under normal home conditions. They will tolerate a wide range of light levels but do best in moderate rather than very bright light; they should be watered regularly so that the soil stays slightly moist but not soggy. The frequency of watering will depend upon the size of the plant relative to its pot, and on the room temperature and humidity as well as air circulation. You might want to use a dilute water-soluble houseplant fertilizer for foliage plants according to the label instructions. Hope this helps!
