About Spathiphyllum 'Peace Lily'

Spathiphyllum 'Peace Lily' Care Guide

The Spathiphyllum, commonly known as the Peace Lily, is a beloved indoor plant that boasts lush green leaves and elegant white flowers, symbolizing peace and tranquility. Its ability to purify the air by removing toxins and its low maintenance requirements make it a favorite among both beginner and seasoned plant enthusiasts.

Lighting

Prefers bright, indirect light but can tolerate lower light conditions. Direct sunlight can cause leaf burn, so it's best to avoid placing it in front of south-facing windows without any shade.

Watering

Keep the soil consistently moist, but not waterlogged. Water when the top inch of soil feels dry to the touch. The Peace Lily is forgiving if you occasionally forget to water it, drooping as a reminder when it's thirsty.

Temperature and Humidity

Enjoys typical indoor temperatures between 65°F and 80°F. Avoid exposure to drafts and sudden temperature changes. High humidity levels are beneficial, so consider using a humidifier or placing the plant on a pebble tray with water to increase ambient humidity.

Feeding

Fertilize every 6-8 weeks during the growing season with a balanced liquid houseplant fertilizer, diluted to half the recommended strength. In the winter, reduce feeding to once every 3 months.
