Identify Sick Plant

I am really quite good at caring for plants. A friend just gave me this sick houseplant and asked if I could revive it. I’m sure I can. Can you tell me the name of this plant?

Hi David,


Drroping green leaves on Peace Lily Plant
Sick Peace Lily Plant

Your plant looks like a Peace Lily (Spathiphyllum). The discoloration on the leaf tips is from too much fertilizer or using water that has too much fluoride, chlorine , or salt (from a water softener).  If the soil is moist and you still have drooping leaves, remove them from the plant. The brown and yellow on the leaves of a Peace Lily cannot be trimmed. The leaf just keeps getting brown or yellow along the cut edges. You can read all of my care tips for a Peace Lily in the Popular HousePlant section of the website.
