Hi. I got my peace lily around a year ago. The soil is mixed with moss for good drainage and I have a humidifier to keep humidity up. The window is right next to the plant, but it still never blooms. I use plant food spikes for plant nutrients.

The tips of the leaves sometimes turn yellow which usually indicates too much sunlight, so I really don't know why it isn't blooming or even flowering. Please help.

Welcome! Is it still in its plastic nursery pot or did you repot it directly into the white planter?

I repotted it directly into the white planter.

Repotting disrupts the flowering cycle of most flowering plants. Your Peace Lily probably won't bloom again until after it has filled the new pot with roots and that may be a pretty long time.

Younger plants (from divisions) also take a while to get to flowering size. Be patient
