How can I get my Peace Lily to bloom again? I've had my peace lily for about 3 or 4 years & it's always done well - lots of healthy foliage & constant blooming. I have always given it low amounts of fertilizer when I watered it, (1/4 amount of fertilizer) which is why I think it's done so well. It still has healthy foliage, but it hasn't bloomed since the fall. I re-potted it in early September & assumed it wasn't blooming because it's busy making new leaves. But the time before that when I re-potted, it seemed to bloom shortly after re-potting. Is it possible the plant is just tired of blooming & won't bloom again or do I need to be more patient?

Nicole - Repotting a flowering plant almost always disrupts the flowering cycle. It will need time to fill the new pot with roots before it is ready to flower again. In the interim, enjoy it as a foliage plant. And, yes, be patient!
