My peace lilly has some flowers that although they look healthy have started to droop. Not the actual flowers but the stems they ar on. I have 8 flowers that are standing erect but 4 that are on thinner stems that are droopy or shooting out sideways. The leaves are not drooping so don't think it's under watered. Any ideas?

I didn't successfully open your photo but my guess would be that the stems aren't strong enough to hold up the flowers. It happens all the time.

Hello Sloppy6! They don't last too long, so I just let it go when it reaches that phase. As long as the leaves are okay, and some still producing, all is well.
