Spathiphyllum, commonly known as Peace Lily, is an elegant, traditional houseplant with glossy, dark green leaves and tall, white flower spikes.
Size: 12 cm diameter x 45cm height
Light: Indirect light or light shade.
Watering: Keep the compost moist (but not soggy) while the plant is actively growing, usually from spring through autumn. Allow the top of the compost to dry between waterings in winter when light levels are lower.
Feeding: Use half the recommended dose of a balanced liquid fertilizer every 6-8 weeks from spring through summer.
Soil: Multipurpose/houseplant potting mix or soil-based compost.
Troubleshooting: Wilting leaves may indicate that the plant needs watering.
Tip: You can remove flower stems when spent. This plant can be toxic if ingested, so we advise to keep it away from pets and children. Direct sunlight can leave sunburn marks on the leaves. Keep it away from drafts.
Did you know? The tiny blooms of a peace lily are found on the spike. The white petal is actually a protective sheath called spathe, which gradually fades from white to green.
