My peace lily was severely damaged by a bad housesitter and I'm now trying to get it back to life. I've set it up in a sort of hydroponic system but I've kept the plant in soil rather than growing medium like pebbles or dry compost. I also don't put salts in the water - because the soil is rich in nutrients. Can anyone tell me if this will help it - or, more to the point, can anyone tell me if this will harm it? It has one new leaf beginning and I'm loathe to do anything to delay its progress. I should add that I took it out of its larger pot and put it in a very small pot so that it could more quickly get root bound.
I have a picture of it, but I can't see a clear way to post it. The little lily is in a small plastic pot, which is held in place in the neck of a small round flower vase, filled with water.
