Help with my rescued peace lily

Posted by brit21 (My Page) on

I just rescued a very large peace lily that someone had out at their garbage. It is very droopy, the flowers are browning, and so are some of the leaves. It was very root bound and I replanted it in a very large pot and watered it. It didn't have any bugs in it. Does anyone have any advice for me on how to bring this plant back to its full glory?

RE: Help with my rescued peace lily

If you will read my post in this GardenWeb thread I believe you will find all the answers you are seeking.

Give it fast draining soil, good light, keep it evenly damp (not wet) and will will come right back. In South America these plants live on the edges of streams and live in full sunlight as well as in water.

I know there will be those that say this is not possible in a home but it is!
