Save My Plant!


Does anyone have this lovely plant? My sweet hubby got it for me as a Mother's Day gift. I love it but am at a loss as to how to care for it. According to hubby, it's a lily but he's not exactly sure what type. I thought it might be a peace lily but the pics I've seen online show much smaller plants.

In the interim, this big baby is beginning to look not so perky. As you can see, I haven't re-potted it yet because I was told to wait a little while to let the plant acclimatize to our home environment. However, I have moved it to a more shaded and spacious spot and have watered it once per the plant vendor's instructions. Any other ideas? The bottom leaves are dying and I am worried the upper ones will soon follow. Would love to hear from you green-thumbs out there! Thanks!

That is quite a lovely plant and I, too, thought it was a really large peace lily. Here is a garden forum that takes about taking care of it.

Some suggests that the plant might be lacking humidity...
