Wilting Peace Lily – Am I A Killer?

Ask the Expert: I have a large peace lily. I discovered some kind of bug in the soil. So I repotted the plant. But first I sprayed the roots with water to wash alot of the dirt from the roots to make sure the bugs were not in there. They I transplanted it into new soil and sprayed the top of the soil with bug spray that is suppose to be harmless to plants. The next day my plant isn’t happy and it seems that it is almost wilting. Will it perk up or did I just kill it? Is there anything I could do for it or have I done enough? Veronica

  1. Veronica,

    Your peace lily is going through transplant shock. The best course of action for now it to leave it alone. Check on it every couple of days and water only if the soil is dry. Make sure that your pot has good drainage.

    In the future, you can use an insecticide that is labeled for direct soil application and you won’t have to re-pot the peace lily.

    Patricia,
    If you overwatered and left your plant out of the pot, it has probably experienced some degree of shock. You need to put your plant back in the pot and allow it to dry. Then get it on a regular watering schedule.
