Peace Lily

Asked October 1, 2016, 3:33 PM EDT

My peace lily has been dormant for a while. I transplanted it 2 years ago, and it has been ok. I was thrilled last week to have a bloom on it! Unfortunately in the past few days the plant has been drooping. The soil is moist and it is getting its usual sun. Could it have root rot? What can I do to fix this? Thank you

I suggest you turn your plant out of the pot. Put newspapers down to contain the mess. If you have root rot the you will black/brown/soft roots. Your plant should have white firm roots. Check the pot and see if the drainage is working. Your plant cannot stand in constant wet soil. Remove the rotting roots and leave those that still look good and replant in fresh soil, making sure there is good drainage.
