Peace lilies are one of the most popular houseplants since they’re easy to care for and look great! These tropical, evergreen plants grow on the forest floor in their natural environment, where they receive dappled sunlight and steady moisture and humidity. The secret to getting your peace lily to thrive in your home is to replicate similar conditions to those of their natural habitat.   They hold their own well and look appealing in all types of homes, with their dramatic contrast of dark green foliage and creamy white flowers held high on stiff stems.

LIGHT:  While peace lilies will tolerate very low light, without some brightness from a window or a lamp, they are unlikely to bloom much.  They do well positioned where they can receive bright, indirect light for at least a couple of hours every day.  

WATER:  Watering must be regular but moderate to keep a peace lily from drooping or getting root rot. Consistency is key. Keep the soil lightly moist to the touch, but not overly saturated. To boost humidity, spritz the leaves with water.

SOIL: Peace lilies prefer a soil that can mix drainage and moisture retention. Blended potting mixes with texture are common for peace lilies, especially ones with perlite, peat moss, coir, or loam.

FERTILISER:  Because of the plant’s durability and tolerance for a wide range of light and watering conditions, many people avoid using fertiliser on peace lilies. A water-soluble houseplant fertiliser diluted to half-strength, on the other hand, can give your peace lily a boost during the spring and summer and encourage blooming.

REPOTTING: Peace lilies are very content to be crammed into their pots.  Repotting a peace lily plant is occasionally necessary, as a root-bound plant isn’t able to absorb enough nutrients and water.  When this happens, you can give your peace lily a bigger home, or you can divide it and make two smaller plants.
