I just looked at mine and the tip is starting to turn brown, I know it's sad the flower doesnt last as long as we'd like them to.

If it gets no direct sunlight then I don't see how it could possibly have been burned by light.

It could just be how the bloom looks as it's 'going over' ... or it could be symptomatic of over-watering and/or a high level of soluble salts in the soil.

This would be a normal look for a dying peace lily bloom. Doesn't sound like light is too high. Wondering how long you've had the plant, that could have a bearing on the possibility of other problems.

Are there any plants that discourage snakes? If not, any other ideas? Carol7 35 Aug 23, 2007 12:37 AM
