Should I remove brown 'peace lily' leaves?


I know ways to solve the problem, but don't know if I should keep those leaves or cut them?

    trim them off , it'll do no harm

    Might I ask if it's been over-watered? That can cause the leaves to look like that.

    They also go like that if they have sunlight fall on the leaves. I would cut them off they are unsightly. They are a good bathroom plant. Damp and gloomy!

    we had 2 massive specimens on our balcony in Goa. 

    We donated them to our fave restaurant when we sold up.

    Ah , happy memories .

  • The plant is of mum's I'm not sure if she over watered it. We never misted it, and it's summer so it might be lack of water.

    I just wish to know if it's a good idea to cut those leaves off or not.




  • Yes, cut them off at soil level. image

    Hope it recovers well and blooms beautifully for your mother image
