it could be the air in the office is too dry/hot for it. I thoght the direct sunlight would be too strong too. but i havent grown this so some one else might know. Plants often drop flowers if they have got a chill so where was it after you bought it and before it went in your office?

What a lovely plant. Offices can be a great place for plants as they are quite warm at times, until some hot-bod decides they need the bloomin' air conditioning turned on. I usually sit and shiver whilst everyone else is baking hot. I really hate the air conditioning - it's like sitting in the fridge, and I'm sure they are unhealthy as they pass germs around the office. Guaranteed if someone has a cold, it's not long before everyone else is sniffing and coughing all over the place. I have a peace lily on my desk, not in direct sunlight though. It's doing really well, although because it's a warm office it tells me when it needs a drink by drooping. As soon as I have given it a drink it perks back up in no time. I'm guessing your plant has been in a cold location before you bought it and it's just getting over the shock of being brought into the warm.
