Hi Liveolivy, :welcome:

Your Peace Lilies (Spathiphyllum) bloom is just fading with age which is normal. Mine do the same thing, some even look green before finally falling off.

Right, it's a cycle. You'll have leaves, then flowers, the flowers fade and die and then the leaves will die down. Don't throw it away like I did in my younger days! Keep on watering it occasionally, and it will spring back up when the time is right. The plant I have was left by a previous renter 35 years ago, and it's still going strong. I really need to divide it, but have procrastinated. I'm sure my pot is solid roots now.

I agree it is just its normal cycle. I see there is a new bloomstalk so all is well. I just cut off the wilted stalk later when it goes all brown. Just keep on growing the plant in a moist, well draining media and it should continue on making new leaves and bloomstalks.
