Peace Lily (Spathiphyllum) Care Instructions
Light - Peace lilies are low light-loving plants. Make sure they’re set away from windows, receiving diffused light, and are not placed in a spot that receives direct sunlight.
Water - Peace lilies like a good dose of H2O. They can even be grown hydroponically, so water isn’t usually too much of an issue. If your plant goes dry it’s going to tell you with droopy leaves. If this happens, give it a good drink and wait for it to perk back up. Peace lilies are also one of the few plants that actually prefer to be root bound, so if you’ve had your plant for a while and were thinking it needs repotting, it’s probably happy to stay as is, it might just like a soil top up.
Plants that flower and fruit generally have to go through a period of dormancy in order to regenerate enough energy to go through another bloom cycle. During this time the plant will most likely have dropped all its blooms and just be green. (Spent blooms can be trimmed all the way back to where they sprouted from.) Keep taking care of it like you normally would, adding fertilizer into the watering schedule if possible. This will help restore the plant’s energy in order to re-bloom.
Rotate your plant to ensure even growth on all sides and dust the leaves periodically so the plant can photosynthesize efficiently.
*Just like people, each plant is a unique living thing and may have varying needs, especially in their individual locations. These are basic guidelines that may have to be augmented slightly depending on the environment you place your plant in, as well as frequency and amount of water given..
