Hereof, how do you revive an overwatered peace lily?
There is no easy or quick fix. Remove any loose soil from the surface, not in direct contact with the roots below. Then water as soon as the surface of the soil feels almost dry. Try to add enough water so that the soil around the roots stays moist for about a week.
Furthermore, how do I know if my peace lily is dying? Watch the leaves of your plant for signs of what it may need. If the leaves begin to droop, or the bottom-most leaves are turning yellow and wilt, you need to provide water. If the leaves start to turn yellow, the plant may be receiving too much sunlight. Move it to a darker area.
Also asked, how do you tell if peace lily is overwatered or Underwatered?
Peace lilies with overwatering symptoms are highly susceptible to Rhiczoctonia, Cylindrocladium, Pythium and Phythophthora rots. The worst disorder, Cylindrocladium, surfaces with yellowing, wilting lower foliage. Dark-brown spots may appear on the petioles, or stalks between the leaves and stems.
What happens when you overwater a peace lily?
Peace lily prefers to have medium, indirect sunlight and will develop yellow leaves if it is getting too much light or very low light. Overwatering and under-watering can cause leaves to wilt and the leaf edges to turn yellow or brown. Your container should have a drainage hole in it so the pot will not hold water.
