Spathiphyllum (Peace Lily)
Peace lilies are generally grown as potted houseplants in the United States, as most areas are not conducive to growing the plant outdoors. If you have potted peace lilies, you can move them outside during the summer months, but once temperatures dip, it's a good idea to bring them back inside. Peace lilies enjoy moderately moist soil and filtered sunlight, along with consistently temperate conditions.
- Plant Care:
- Pot Size: 6"
- Light: Peace lilies are shade-loving plants in their native habitats, but when grown indoors they need a bit more filtered light, though not direct sunlight (some varieties can withstand more light than others). Curled, pale leaves generally indicate that the plant is receiving too much light and scorched leaves indicate too much direct sun. In either case, the plant should be moved to a shadier location.
- Soil: Peace lilies like rich, loose potting soil that contains plenty of organic matter. These plants are native to tropical canopy conditions where the soil is packed with deteriorating plant material, so you'll find the best success with soil that mimics this composition. Additionally, the plant is also very sensitive to too-damp soil conditions, so be sure to choose a well-draining mixture and pot the plant in a terracotta or clay vessel that can wick away excess moisture.
- Water: Peace lilies much prefer being underwatered rather than overwatered, so take care to water them only when they're dry at least an inch below the surface. During the summer, mist peace lilies frequently because they thrive with higher humidity like is typical in a rainforest. In winter, reduce watering but never allow the soil to dry out completely. If your water at home is highly chlorinated, it's a good idea to use filtered water. Alternatively, you can allow tap water to sit for several days until the chlorine evaporates out.
