Spathiphyllum Plant – Peace Lily

Known also as the Peace Lily, the Spathiphyllum plant are a beautiful houseplant, but not part of the Lily family.  It comes from the rainforests of Central and South America.  It’s a favorite actually because of its white or yellow lily flowers that last for a long time, bringing such joy and pleasure.

If the plant is tended to well it will bloom twice a year.  When you wipe the broad leaves of this flowing tropical plant, they look beautifully glossy and shiny. No wonder they are very popular indoor plants for office and used as props for lounges and bedrooms displayed in magazines and brochures.

They Ooze out Fresh, Clean Air

These beautiful Spathiphyllum plants also filter indoor pollutants, and many people like having these indoor plants in their bedrooms. If you want, however, the plant can be grown outdoors in warm climates, where it can grow to be 6ft high.

This attractive plant, of which there are quite a few varieties, thrive in-home or office environments.

Caring for the Spathiphyllum Plant 

  • Spathiphyllum plants like loose potting soil with organic material.
  • They like their soil fairly moist.
  • Recognize the signs of ‘all is not well’. The leaves become yellow and drooping.
  • They like a temperate climate with no sudden changes.
  • Even though they like the shade in the wild, indoors they want filtered light and not direct sunlight.
  • Don’t use chlorinated water to water the plant. Distilled water is far better for these plants.
  • Feed the plant with a general houseplant fertilizer.
  • Spray mist over the leaves with distilled water during the summer.
