Thank you so much!! Hoping to revive it for her!
This looks like a philidendron
I believe it is a peace lily and does not take a lot of special care.
Looks like my peace lily is at the moment. Wilted. They like water and warm but not hot places. I have had mine for 13 years and they do pop back up once you give them a drink. I never fertilized mine and it seems happy. Once you give it some water, it should be fine and your friend will not know it had the wilt. It likes low to moderate light. If it does get a few yellow leaves, you should cut the off with a sharp scissors. It will be fine! Take care! Happy plant sitting.
Thank you, everyone!!! I'll check out the forum; I'm sure it is a peace lily now; it is looking much better; and I'm slowly trimming off the brown or dead leaves.
Yes that is a peace lily. Just add water. It will pop right back. I never fertilize mine and it is huge. I trim off yellowed leaves and I keep inside in winter and outside in summer time. Peace lilies need to be repotted every two years to a bigger pot. I never put mine in full sun outside and it is not picky about certain amounts of sun inside. I have had mine for more years than I know. And started new ones from it that are thriving well. Plenty of water and replant into bigger pot every two years. The wilt will pop back up after watering. It is a hardy plant. Not finicky so it is actually hard to kill one. Or mine would have died years ago. Add water and it will be fine.
My peace lily seems to have healthy leaves, no browning or wilting, but they are all bent. This plant was a gift and they have always been this way.
You may have too much light or a high temperature
The leaves of a peace lily can droop because its in need of water or because it has been overwatered. This plant is rather finicky about moisture, lighting and temperature. You can find some possible reasons for droopy leaves and suggestions for helping your plant at
You may need to up the watering schedule if it is always like that. Mine gets that way when it is thirsty. These like water.
They also like strong afternoon sun, so you could try it in a different window if it is not getting enough light.
I have had one for going on 15 years and it is still going strong!

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.
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.
