Peace lily drooping for about a year

chrismartin76May 5, 2008

I have a peace lily that didn't so well after repotting so I took the advice of someone on rec.gardens, washed off the roots, and repotted in a smaller pot with fresh soil. It continued to droop and I thought it would die but I kept watering it and it has survived for a year but it is still drooping to the point where some leaves are horizontal. Is there anything I can do to revive it?

It is an indoor plant that gets low to moderate sunlight throughout the day. I have had other peace lilies in that location before and they have done well. I water it once a week.

I have several pots of peace lily and in my climate, the plant seems to thrive without any care. I maintain my plants by picking off the outer-most leaves, which if I don't would "droop horizontally".
You said that "some leaves are horizontal"... so I suppose these are the outer-most leaves. If that is the case, I'd take them off so the whole plant doesn't look "drooping".
Here's a photo of my peace lily.
