Question:

I just repotted my peace lilies and now they are very droopy, what can I do?

Hardiness Zone: 8a

Megan from Sumter, South Carolina

Answer:

Megan,

It's likely that your newly repotted peace plant is still suffering from a bit of transplant shock. If your plant was healthy at the time of repotting, it should snap back in a couple of weeks. To help it recover as quickly as possible, you'll want to minimize any additional stress. Give it plenty of light, but make sure to keep it out of direct sunlight for a week or two. Keep its soil moist, but not wet, until the roots have had enough time to become firmly established. This usually takes anywhere from 2-3 weeks. Don't give it any fertilizer until you start to see some active growth. This may take a few months, so be patient. If you repotted your peace plant into a much larger pot, you may want to move it to something a bit smaller. It's always best to choose pots that are only one size larger than the pots your plants are currently in. When you go from small containers to large containers you increase the soil volume. This means the soil stays wetter longer each time you water and the roots may suffer as a result.

Your Peace Lilly needs water. It will pop up again and be as good as new.

As you probably know peace lillies are very hardy and are hard

to kill. Water the plant and it should come back to life again.

One other trick to try if you drink coffee feed the plant some

Ever since mine has been caffinated the leaves have this

great shine to them, and it never droops.

Good luck.
