Hi
I got my peace lily about a week ago and it was doing great till now. I checked many websites but I couldn't find any great ideas. At first I moved the location away from the sun for there were brown spots but for myself I think it's due to the temp. My house has a heater and since it's snowing Idk what to do. I then took a warm cloth and wrapped it around the plants pot for now I NEED HELP. I don't want to kill the plant.

I can't think of much you can do to damage a plant severely in one week.
1-Drowning.
2- Exposure to freezing air while bringing it home.
It doesn't look all that bad to me. Leaves look normal. The white flowers won't last forever, of course. and probably most easily damaged by frigid air.
Forget the towel, don't need that.

Hello FairyGuildPlanting!

Check if your plant's container has drain holes. Next, remove the bloomstalks, it is going bad already anyways. Remove the towel, it does not serve any purpose. If container has drain holes, then just water the plant till water drains out, and give some intervals before next watering. It does love a moist media.

I don't mist the leaves of my Peace lily, it just invites fungal issues.
