Peace Lily Advice Is Great - But Where Do I Start?
Ask the Expert: 10 year old Peace Lily w/issues...HELP!
I noticed that a lot of people received their Peace Lily due to the passing of a loved one and I am no different. Needless to say this plant is very special to me as it was received for my Mother's passing back in 1999. At that time I lived in Indiana. Real cold winters and fairly humid springs/summers. The plant THRIVED! If it looked a little droopy all I had to do was water it and BOOM, up came the leaves. They bounced right back. I would sometimes get upset with the blooms when they would start to fade and drop all of the white "dust" stuff all over. Now I wish that were the case. I watered faithfully once a week sometimes a little in between, it was in my office so it had bright but indirect sunlight. I re-potted because it simply grew too large. I am now in Arizona. (Severe climate shock for me too by the way! :-) I still water once a week. Then I thought since the humidty level here is almost non-existent (10% on a good humid day...wow) I would check it more often between regular watering. If dry..water and so on. It is in very bright indirect sunlight and I do not think it needs re-potted and since it looks so bad I don't know if now would be a good time to try that anyway. I haven't seen flowers since just after relocating. (It was in bloom when we got here and then had one more bloom) It has been almost 2 years. It has stopped growing. You can see where there are new sprouts but before some of them even make it to the leaf stage they die off. They go from a healthy looking green and about 1/2 inch later they turn brown and look "dried up" Some make it to leaves and are green and shiny some of those start turning brown at the tips some don't. I read through all of the posts and gathered some great tips but I am confused about which issue to tackle first or just do all at once. Obvioulsy the biggest change is climate but I really do check the soil regulaly and make sure it has good light etc. Is there something I might be missing? I have never fertilized the lily since I got it in 1999. It never seemed to need it. Should I now and if so how? Could starting that now after so long without make it worse? I will take any advice you can give! I just want my "Richie" back (yes, I named it...I'm weird.) Thank you soo much! Kathy
