My peace lily plant was very robust and had lots of flowers. However, its leaves started turning yellow and now it looks like I am going to lose it.

What can I do?

We need a picture really. But I’d say that the most common cause of plant death, especially house plants, is overwatering or over feeding as well as the wrong position in the house, making it bake in the sun!

It would be interesting to know how you approach all of the above!

  • Is it in the garden? Are you having a hot and dry season now? If it is potted, it is easy to check if the soil is dry or soggy. Soil in the garden tends to drain much better, but see first. If it suffers from drought stress, bottom leaves begin yellowing first. Apr 30, 2019 at 19:46
