Q.Peace Lily Wilting

Zone Bangalore | Sanjukta added on June 22, 2020 | Answered

Hi, I recently got a peace lily plant a week back from a nursery. I have placed it beside a window (only indirect sunlight, but it does get a bit bright in afternoons), watered it regularly and also added some organic fertilizer to the soil. The pot has drainage holes, so there is no overwatering issue. But the leaves of the plant are curled and the leaves at the bottom are limp. Also the plant seems to be inclining, I have no idea why.

I wouldn't rule out overwatering, just yet. It is the most common issue with the plant. That isn't to say that this is what is happening, but it happens enough to be aware of.

I do see some tip burning, which can indicate that the fertilizer levels are just a little too high. It will be necessary to test the soil before adding fertilizers, as most potting soils contain more than enough already. Adding more can often cause leaf tip burning, and eventual plant death.

Here are some articles that will help you to test your soil, and care for the plant:
