My Peace Lily plants, both at home & office, have brown tips on several leaves...the tips are [/LIST] [/LIST] totally dead. Otherwise, the plants continue to bloom. Can anyone tell me the cause and solution to this problem?

tap water will brown the tips of plants due to minerals.

i filter my water thru a Brita filter

I love the sweet scents wafting in the breeze. I stop to admire the vibrant colors of all living things. And people think me odd. Then ODD I am!!!

Thanks for the quick reply! I thought I was doing the right thing by letting the tap water sit for a week before using it, but guess that wasn't sufficient. My mom never had a problem, but she had very hard water without a softener added.

Thanks again...and have a wonderful weekend!

Mine have brown/yellow tips too. Growing well otherwise so I thought it was normal. Glad I read this, I am using tap water as well.
