What plant is this?

Asked November 21, 2015, 12:42 PM EST

I am having trouble identifying my friends plant. It isn't doing to well and I can't find out why unless I know what type of plant it is. Thanks for your help. It does not have a bulb, but rather stringy roots.

This is a spathiphyllum, commonly known as peace lily. It may need more light (not direct) or fertilizer but beware that overfertilizing will quickly burn tips. (It hates salts and that includes fertilizer salts.)
