|So far, your Peace Lily appears to be in pretty good shape. Cut off and discard any yellow or brown leaves. Brown leaf tips can also be trimmed off without harm to the plant.
Now that you have repotted, be very careful not to over water because the added soil will retain moisture longer than before you repotted.
To determine how often to water I suggest that following:
Water until a bit of water trickles through into the saucer and note the date. Then, watch carefully and don't water again until the leaves start to wilt just a bit. That will tell you how many days it will go between similar waterings
Try to avoid letting the leaves wilt completely, but if they do, they will recover but some additional leaves may yellow and leaf tips will brown.
Keep your Peace Lily as close to a window as you can without having the rays of the sun fall directly on the leaves.
