Peace Lily Plants
Q.

I transplanted my peace lily and it is now very wilted

Zone New Hampshire | Theresecreamer added on May 29, 2014 | Answered

I transplanted my peace lily to a pot 2" bigger than its original pot. I didn't mess with the roots at all and it is now very wilted. I'm worried it isn't going to survive the shock. Is there anything I can do to help it rejuvenate?

If you didn't straighten out the roots when you lifted them from the old pot, they may not moving into the new soil. First, check out this article on repotting; https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/houseplants/hpgen/learn-more-about-repotting-houseplants.htm
You should probably pot your peace lily again. Start by soaking the whole thing in a bucket or sink for 15 - 30 minutes, to thoroughly moisten the root ball. Let it drain and rehydrate for a day or two, then de-pot it, and straighten out the roots. If they are severely matted at the bottom, you can cut off the bottom inch or so of root mass. Then go ahead and repot again. When you water, make sure you pour the water into the center of the plant where the roots are, as well as around the outer part.
