So, next time your plant starts showing signs of being unhappy and in need of revival efforts – remember, first check for the underlying cause.

You might think it’s too late for your peace lily, but according to experts, these are the steps you should follow in order to revive it.

Q: What should you do when your peace lily is drooping?

One of the best Feng Shui plants is the peace lily and it’s also an excellent indoor plant. It only needs a few things to thrive, which makes it easy to care for. Here are four simple steps to bring them back to life.

Alright, time to take care of your health:

When dealing with a plant that’s drooping, the cause can be one of a few things. But as Plant Expert Kate Lindley from Baby Bio(opens in new tab) explains, the key to recognizing any health issues is assessing your plant’s root health.

To remove your lily from the pot you should tip it to the side, and tease the plant’s roots free from the container. After removing it from the pot, let it lay on a clean surface to release any compost at its base.

When the roots of your plants are soft and brown, it may be an indication that they’re growing rot – a result of being left to sit in waterlogged compost.

The plant can be saved by cutting off dead or dying roots to the point where the root becomes firm and white (just be sure to use sterilized scissors if you want to do this).

When repotting plants, use a clean sharp pair of scissors or pruner to cut any dead roots before using a fresh source of compost.

Remove dead leaves

Peace lilies are one of the best indoor plants for winter, but that doesn’t mean they’re immune to yellowing leaves when the temperature drops. If you notice your plant’s leaves turning brown or crispy, it doesn’t mean it’s dying. If a leaf falls from the plant, don’t worry. Simply remove it and enjoy a healthy-looking plant again!

Cutting leaves that are brown or yellow or show signs of disease helps to prevent a disease from spreading. Kate suggests using clean scissors or pruners to cut any dead leaves. She notes that some plant species are more susceptible to diseases like leaf spots, black legs, or sooty mold, so make sure your scissors are sterile before cutting.

3. When you add nutrients to your diet, you’ll get stronger and healthier.

Peace lilies compost over time.

‘The secret to a great garden is all in the soil,’ Kate says. ‘In order to ensure its health, you need to make sure it has plenty of nutrients.’

Make sure your plants are getting the nutrients they need with a balanced mixture of nitrogen, phosphorous, and potassium. We recommend using an all-purpose plant food every time you water your plants. Simply add a few drops of water and deposit the mixture at the base of your houseplant.


One of the most helpful things you can do when learning how to care for a peaceful lily in winter is to find a sunny spot for it. This will ensure that your plant will keep its green hue despite the lack of natural light in winter.

Here’s a tip- place your plants next to a tray of pebbles in a shallow layer of water, and remember to mist them regularly.

Q: How do you revive your droopy peace lily?

If a peace lily starts to droop and shrivel up, the best way to help it come back to life is to ensure that your house is accommodating of its needs.

As an expert in plants and gardening, Dani Turner said to think about the temperature of your home, how much natural light you get, and the levels of humidity in the space. She suggests that the Peace Lily plant is one of the best bathroom plants as it is more humid as well as having a better level of natural light than other plants.

‘If your Peace Lily leaves are turning yellow, there are a few factors that may be causing this,’ Dani adds. ‘The leaves may either be aging or diseased; if it’s the latter, you can determine this by looking to see if the leaves dry out and fall off. You can also prune away diseased parts of the plant.’
