Peace Lily is a leafy plant that many flower lovers like to grow. But many of them find the Peace Lily leaves become soft and black. They don't know how to solve these problems. For better growing Peace Lily, we'd like to share Peace Lily care guide for leaves softening and blackening.
In the process of growing Peace lily, it leaves all soft easily, which may be due to too light dehydration. Shading and sun protection measures should be taken. The soil in the basin needs water immediately for lack of water. Water is also sprayed on the leaves in summer. Lack of nutrients in time to apply a lot of nitrogen fertilizer and a small amount of phosphate potash. In winter, the temperature should be controlled above 5℃ to keep warm. Here are details of Peace Lily care guide for leaves softening.
Peace Lily can blossom beautiful flowers in the sun, but it is not suitable to be preserved under strong light, otherwise it is easy to make a large amount of water in the leaves evaporate, resulting in the leaves being completely soft. At this time, the Peace Lily should be moved to a ventilated and cool place for maintenance, and the leaves should be sprayed with water in a timely manner, usually for 4 hours of light.
If the Peace Lily pot soil cannot be watered to provide water, its leaves will easily become soft. Therefore, it is necessary to spray water all around the pot soil immediately, so as to evenly moisten the pot soil. Do not water too much, otherwise it will affect its normal growth.
Although Peace Lily does not have a high demand for nutrients, if it is not timely fertilized in the basin soil, resulting in poor growth and soft leaves. It is necessary to immediately apply a large amount of nitrogen fertilizer and a small amount of phosphorus and potassium compound fertilizer, which can gradually restore vitality in the basin soil, which is conducive to better growth of Peace Lily in the basin soil.
Usually Peace lily at low temperature in winter is vulnerable to frostbite, making it absorb water and nutrients from the soil, resulting in its leaf has gradually, no matter for a long time may also be freezing. At this time put on a plastic bag, and can also control the indoor temperature 5 ℃ above, prompting leaves to gradually come back to life.
Peace Lily leaves blackening should be resolved according to circumstances. Strong light sunburn to do a good job of shading and sunscreen work, put in the shade for maintenance. Watering rotten roots removes water to keep the soil dry. Too much fertilizer to dilute the heavy fertilizer or replace the soil to replant. If the air is dry and not ventilated, spray water to humidify to keep ventilation. Abrupt environmental changes regulate light temperature. Here are details of Peace Lily care guide for leaves blackening.
Peace Lily cannot be exposed to strong light. If it is placed under direct light, its leaves will become black. Therefore, it is necessary to transfer Peace Lily to a cool and ventilated area for curing, so that it can avoid the stimulation of direct light, and spray water on its leaves and the surrounding air.
What should I do about the blackened leaves of Peace Lily caused by excessive watering? I should drain the water from the soil seed in the basin in time to restore the dry growth soil. If the rot is serious, I should remove the basin and repair the root, replace the soil in the basin and replant, and then I should water it appropriately for conservation.
Peace Lily leaves blackened may also be caused by excessive and concentrated fertilization, which leads to root burning. At this time, water should be used to irrigate the root system, and the concentrated fertilizer should be diluted so that Peace Lily can absorb nutrients normally. It can also be removed from the basin and cleaned, and then replanted with thin fertilizer frequently for nutrient supplement.
Living in a dry and unventilated environment, it is easy for Peace Lily to have dark leaves. It should be placed in a ventilated place with good air circulation, and spray water from time to time to increase the air humidity in the environment where Peace Lily is growing, so that the leaves will no longer become dark.
If you suddenly change the growth environment, make it suddenly grow in a new environment with a big difference between the temperature and light, and will also appear as a phenomenon of leaf blackening. In this case, the black leaves should be removed, and then the environment should be regulated to make it similar to the previous environment, and then the normal maintenance of the black leaves should be done.
