I bought this large peace liley a week ago, and within two days, the leaves started to turn brown. I moved to a new home during a week of below 20 temps outside. So I fear it got frost bitten while being transported.
I've trimmed off a few branches thus far, but I'm nervous I may end up doing more harm then good.
Any tips? It seems like within the last two days it hasn't gotten any worse.

I think frostbite is a good theory. Cut off the shriveled sections, or whole damaged leaves if you prefer, give normal care, and it will refill.
