Peace Lily Plant Care
House Plants & Flowers

  


Peace Lily, or Spathiphyllum, is one of the most common houseplants. They are often given as flowering gift plants as they are one of the few indoor plants that will continue to bloom, even under the light conditions available in the home.

The Peace Lily can be anywhere from 12 inches tall to over 5 feet tall, depending on the variety. It has an upright, clumping growth and, with the right care, will produce white flowers or spathes throughout much of the year.

While I did not include it in my list of ten best house plants, it is still a great plant for indoor use. Peace Lily just requires a little more attention than those on the list.

Place Peace Lily in the brightest, indirect light you have available. It should not be positioned in hot, direct sunlight for extended periods of time as your Peace Lily will most likely fade and scorch. Some morning sun would be great and provide bright light through the rest of the day.

The more light you can provide the Peace Lily the more likely it is to continue flowering. You can keep a Peace Lily in lower light but it will require less frequent watering. It will also be unlikely to flower much, if it flowers at all.

To help keep your Peace Lily flowering, keep it a bit pot bound. Removing older foliage and flowers as they begin to fade is also beneficial. Occasionally allowing it to dry out almost completely is going to help keep the root system and the plant healthy. A healthy plant is going to produce more new growth, including flowers.

Peace Lily Plant Care - How To Water

Peace Lily plant should be watered thoroughly and then allowed to dry down about one-quarter of the soil depth, spring through summer. Do not allow the soil of your Peace Lily plant to dry completely. It will wilt dramatically if allowed to do so.

You can allow your Peace Lily to dry out a little more during the fall and winter months. Please see the sections on watering your indoor plants and lighting for your plants for important care information.

An occasional application of water soluble plant food will also aid in flower production. Use sparingly as it is easy to damage a plant, especially a potted plant, with too much fertilizer. Never apply fertilizer to a dry plant, always water first then feed. Use less than recommended amounts.

Remove flowers as they begin to fade, brown or spot. The older leaves of the Peace Lily plant tend to yellow and get black or brown tips over time, so I make it a habit to remove a few of these every month.

Removing older growth on most plants will help promote new growth and will help keep your plant pretty, green and gorgeous. Keep the wide leaves clean and dust free by wiping them gently with a dry cloth.

Removing the pollen producing spike in the center of the flower may help prolong flowering. It will also eliminate the messy pollen that would otherwise fall. This is one of the few flowers that makes me sneeze and I am not allergic to anything else. So if you have allergic reactions, you should cut this part of the flower out before it begins to release pollen.

Like any other plant, the Peace Lily can have insect problems. Fungus gnats, mealybugs, mites, scale, thrips, aphids and whitefly can all be problems for your Peace Lily plant. A mild solution of water and dish soap to wash off the pests should be effective. You can even put your plant in the shower and wash it off, just keep the water at room temperature. It is a good idea to repeat this once a week for three to four weeks.
