Why Is My Peace Lily So Pale?
Ask the Expert: What's wrong with my peace lilies?
I replanted a peace lily and separated it into 3 plants. They are growing fine and the lily grows periodically. However, the pigment is disappearing from the leaves. The green keeps disappearing even on new growth. What is wrong with my plants? Alice
We have one of two issues: nutrient deficiency or excessive light and/or temperature.
With a nutrient deficiency, the peace lily leaves will get chlorotic leaves and will develop at a slower than normal rate. To take care of this issue you will need to fertilize the plant with a balanced fertilizer that has trace elements. Try using Peters Professional Plant Food with micro nutrients. It will have what is needed to correct the nutrient deficiency. Be sure to dilute the fertilizer appropriately for your peace lilies. Then follow your normal peace lily plant care
With a temperature or light exposure problem, the leaves may be curled, pale, and chlorotic. The leaves may die prematurely. To take care of this problem you will need to make sure that direct light is not beating down on the plant. You must also make sure that extremely hot air is not blowing on the plant from air vents. You might want to mist the air around the plant as well.
