|I recently returned from a 4week trip and discovered I forgot to move my peace lilly to the kitcken where the care taker came in to water all my plants. The PL
leaves and stems are completely dried but still green what should I do? If the roots are alive will it regrow? How long would It take to see regrowth?

|If, after watering and giving the plant time to recover, the leaves are still completely dry they are dead. Cut them off and wait (impatiently) to see if you get new leaves. If nothing happens in the next couple weeks, your plant is dead. Sorry!

|Dont give up, I left my PL out on my porch and we had a hard freeze, it was black and what I thought was dead-er than dead I didnt give up, I cut her back to the soil line and she is alive and coming back very nicely. Cut off all the leafs as Daisy said and patiently wait, she may just surprise you and start to grow in a few weeks|
