HOW TO CARE FOR
ABOUT PEACE LILIES
The Peace Lily or Spathiphyllum, is an awesome easy care houseplant with dark green leaves and charming white flowers on tall stems above the foliage. Because the peace lily is one of the most efficient houseplants at filtering indoor pollutants from the air, it is an excellent choice for bedrooms or anywhere in the home where you spend a lot of time.
Peace Lilies symbolize peace, innocence, purity, healing and hope. They are often given as a gift in remembrance of a loved one, or simply to show love and care.
When should I water my Peace Lily?
To see if your Peace Lily needs water, stick your finger about an inch down into the soil. If the soil feels dry, water. If the soil feels moist, do not water. If you are unsure, check again in a few days. The plant will wilt dramatically when it gets too dry, but its leaves will pop back soon after it gets watered.
Never mist your foliage. Misting leaves causes fungal issues and disease. The only plants that are okay to mist are ferns and carnivorous plants.
Peace Lilies do well in all indirect light conditions from high to low however, they will flower more often in bright indirect light.
Peace Lily size depends on variety and ranges from twelve inches to three or more feet tall.
Peace Lilies prefer moist, well-drained soil.
TEMPERATURE & HUMIDITY
Peace Lilies enjoy high humidity and adapt well to normal household temperatures.
Fertilize your Peace Lily March through October with a bloom-boosting fertilizer. To help it grow optimally and evenly, occasionally dust the leaves, and rotate the pot by a ¼ turn once a month.
ARE PEACE LILIES PET SAFE?
According to the ASPCA, the Peace Lily is toxic to dogs and cats.
If the edges of the leaves turn brown the plant may require an additional humidity source. If the leaves along the bottom of the plant turn yellow, this could indicate overwatering.
