|I re-potted my peace lilly about a month ago and it is still dying. The leaves will not stand up, I know that the pot I place them in is too big. Now I have bugs in the plants when I water them. Also I think that I also re-potted them when they were rot root because the roots were black. I did not know about root rot at the time. There are signs of new growth on each stem, however the new growth is dying or the leaves will not open up. Can this plant survive? Can I re-pot the plant again?

|When you transplant into a larger container you will raise the water volume in the root zone. That will cause the plant to hold water more than 7 days and drowned the roots. When the plant stays wet for too long the roots turn black and mushy.You have no other choice but to take it out of the large container and let the soil dry or it will die.
NOT A EXPERT! Just a grow worm! I never met a plant I didn’t love.✌

|Repotting is rarely the solution to any plant problem but is often the source of root damage.
Please post a photo of your plant and its pot.
