These stately shade-loving plants are not only easy to care for but are excellent at cleaning the air of a home or office. Their deep green leaves and large white blooms add a touch of flair to any indoor space.
Your Peace Lily will do best in medium to bright indirect light, but can tolerate low light happily. Never allow your plant to receive direct sunlight, as the leaves can burn.
Maintain a regular watering schedule and keep your Peace lily moist, but not wet or soggy. This is not a drought-tolerant plant, but it is relatively forgiving if you forget to water it from time to time. Extended periods of dryness can result in brown leaf tips or edges. Allow the top 50% of soil to dry between watering.
Like many tropical indoor plants, your Peace Lily prefers a spot with ample humidity. If leaf edges begin to curl or brown, mist them with lukewarm water on a regular basis, or place a humidifier nearby. Your bathroom or kitchen are perfect spots for your Peace Lily because these areas tend to be more humid.
Your Peace Lily prefers average room temperatures from 15-27 degrees. They are sensitive to cold drafts and blowing heat during the winter months, so keep them away from windows and heaters for best results.
Use a general houseplant fertilizer every month during the spring and summer. No fertilizer is necessary in the winter when plant growth naturally slows.
Peace Lily is considered to be toxic to animals and humans.
