Q.Peace Lily Leaves Breaking

Zone 30016 | karamevans04 added on February 15, 2020 | Answered

Hello. My peace Lily stopped blooming a while ago. I’ve noticed the leaves breaking and turning yellow and brown. I have moved it from in front of the window to a window that has blinds. Not sure what to do? I don’t water it alot, and I use distilled water and I also spray the leaves lightly with water. Any suggestions would be great!

It, likely, needs just a little more light. This will keep them from elongating and being un-sturdy. I would, also, recommend to not spray leaves with water. This can introduce bacterial, or fungal infections, which will appear as tattered, or yellow brown areas.

If you need to raise the humidity, it will be best to use a humidifier, or place a tray of pebbles and water below the plant.
