Spathiphyllum 'Peace Lily' Description

Peace Lilies feature broad, dark green leaves that emerge directly from the soil and grow upward in a graceful, arching pattern. The plant's standout feature is its blooms, which consist of a white, spoon-shaped spathe (similar to a petal) that enfolds a spadix (the flower spike), which is full of tiny flowers. These plants can bloom several times a year with proper care, though they are primarily valued for their evergreen foliage.

Care Plan for Spathiphyllum 'Peace Lily'

Light: Peace Lilies prefer bright, indirect light but are known for their tolerance of low light conditions, making them ideal for locations away from windows. However, insufficient light may reduce flowering, and too much direct sunlight can scorch their leaves.

Watering: Water the Peace Lily when the top inch of soil feels dry, or when the leaves start to droop slightly, which is a tell-tale sign that it needs water. This plant likes consistent moisture but is sensitive to overwatering. Use room temperature water to avoid shocking the plant's roots.

Humidity: Peace Lilies thrive in high humidity but can adapt to average household humidity. If the tips of the leaves turn brown, it indicates that the air is too dry, and you should mist the leaves or use a humidifier to raise humidity levels.

Temperature: Keep the plant in temperatures between 65-85°F (18-29°C). Avoid drafts, sudden temperature changes, and exposure to extreme cold, which can harm the plant.

Child and Pet Safety: Peace Lilies are toxic to both pets and humans if ingested. The plant contains calcium oxalate crystals, which can cause irritation to the mouth, tongue, and stomach, leading to symptoms like difficulty swallowing, drooling, and vomiting. It's important to keep this plant out of reach of children and pets.

General Tips: Fertilize every 6-8 weeks during the growing season with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer diluted by half. Peace Lilies benefit from being repotted every few years or when they outgrow their pots. Regularly wipe the leaves with a damp cloth to remove dust and help the plant photosynthesize more efficiently.
