Q. Dividing an over grown Peace Lily

I followed all the directions to divide this plant. It was huge and about 6 years old and it was root bound. I thought I did it right, but it’s been weeks and the plant divisions are still very droopy from where the leaves curve down off the stem. I decided to put them in just water. When I bought the plant it was in water with a beta fish. I have grown tropical plants in just water and they have been that way for over 10 years…what did I do wrong, and should I have more patience?

It appears the root structure is overwhelmed by the pot size.
This can cause overwatering and root rot.
I would suggest repotting with a good quality potting mix and a smaller pot size with drainage.

Q. Peace Lily planting

Can I take just the stem of the plant of a peace lily and start a root from the stalk part. No crown or root just from the stem? Say someone gave me a stem with the leave up top of the stem or stalk…can it take root like other plants and them begin to grow?

It can, but it may take awhile, and have to be constantly disinfected with peroxide. You can make a rooting hormone out of a few drops of honey, and a crushed aspirin tab in warm water. This will help it to root faster, while keeping it clean. Make sure to keep the soil slightly moist at all times. It should not be wet, or dry, but in between. In a dimly lit window would be the best place to put this for rooting. After it has, you can slowly increase the light exposure.
