Q.How To Recover My Peace Lily From Transplant Shock

Zone London, UK | Anonymous added on July 5, 2023 | Answered

Due to a fungal infection I repotted my peace lily (houseplant), and teased it at the roots to get rid of all fungus. Repotted in new soil, and then- my mistake- left it in a sunny spot to avoid further fungus growth. This shocked the plant further. It has now been in a shady spot for a number of weeks. Half the plant/the biggest leaves turned brown/yellow so I cut all affected away. I water it regularly. I tried everyday for a week and then left it a week. The soil is always moist, and I don’t let it sit in water. I’ve tried watering it with epsom salts, and today with baby bio fertiliser. The remaining leaves are green but completely wilted and the plant barely stands, I am holding it up in it’s pot with an ornament. How do I revive it? Will B1 work? How often should I water it? All advice welcome please.

Bring it into a room with indirect light, let the top of the soil dry before watering again. Do not add anything but water till it recovers. Only water when the soil is dry to the touch. (It may have been overwatered.)
