Q.We Need Help With Our Peace Lily

Zone 56001 | Newguy added on August 8, 2020 | Answered

We recent got this peace lily. Over the last 2 days she has developed yellow and brown/black spots on her flower and on some lower leave. We have been watering the soil once a week and misting the soil every other day. She isn’t in direct sunlight either. Her flower also never turned white and was a light green before this.

This is likely an infection brought about by soils that don't have an adequate time to dry out thoroughly, or the higher humidity provided by misting.

I would start using a fungicide on, both, the soil and plant. Make sure when watering that the top 2 or 3 inches of soil is allowed to dry out, thoroughly before watering. This will be a better option than watering on schedule, and will prevent future infections.

Here are some articles that will help:
