Rotting Roots Can Cause Yellowing Of Peace Lily Leaves
Ask the Expert:What's wrong with my Peace Lily?
I have a rather large peace lily that I have been keeping on my front porch (no direct sunlight whatsoever) and the bottom leaves are beginning to turn yellow and die off. Â What am I doing wrong?Â Pat
A peace lily (Spathiphyllum clevelandii) that has been exposed to a soggy condition for an extended period will develop root rot. The first indication that a peace lily has root rot is the yellowing of lower leaves. Theses leaves will eventually fall off.
To see if the roots are rotting, you may need to remove it from the pot.Â Peace lilies should be planted in a container that has the ability to drain excess moisture. You may need to repot the peace lily. Once the peace lily is placed in the proper conditions it should recover.
