Purchased 2 Spathiphyllumm
plants three weeks ago. One is in house and is doing well. 2nd plant is outdoors in my screen house - not in sun. The plant that is outdoors is droopy and leaves are soft. Any thoughts?

Droopy leaves can indicate water stress and/or dry, stagnant air. Make sure you water thoroughly but let the top half inch of soil dry out between waterings. You can't change the climate but you can provide some air circulation by placing a small fan in the screen room. Misting the plant or setting it on a gravel filled tray in which you keep a little water will increase the humdity around the plant. Give this a try. I hope you see an improvement soon!
