Growing and Caring Peace Lilies
Peace lilies are shade loving plants with varieties that range in size from 1 to 6 feet tall. The long-lasting white flowers, which bloom all year long, add brightness to dark rooms. Peace lilies require minimal watering. The soil should be kept slightly moist.
Light: They are shade-loving plants in their native habitats, and in the home they prefer light to moderate shade. Some varieties can withstand more light. Yellow leaves indicate the Peace Lily is getting too much light. Brown spot and streaks indicate direct sun rays have reached the plant and scorched it.
Water: During the summer, water and mist frequently. They thrive with higher humidity. In water, reduce watering, but never allow the soil to dry out.
Temperature: They really prefer moist warmth; avoid cold drafts and temperatures below 55ºF if possible. Beware. Because temperatures below 45°F will kill it, so keep it indoors much of the year.
Soil: These plants like a rich, loose potting soil containing plenty of organic material.
Fertilizer: Feed weekly in the summer, or use slow-release pellets at the beginning of the season.
Re-potting the Peace Lily : The Peace Lily should be repotted every year or two. The signs that a Peace Lily should be repotted include:
Peace Lily Potting Mix: Use a peat-based potting mix that contains perlite (or sand) and composted bark. Ingredients will be listed. Peace Lilies grow under a forest canopy and so are used to living in deteriorating bark. Make sure the mix has a springy texture, dark color and low odor.
Peace Lily Pots: Clay, ceramic or plastic are equally useful. Choose a pot just two inches wider in diameter than original pot. The largest pot size a Peace Lily will ever need is 10 inches in diameter. To avoid root rot, make sure all pots have drainage holes, even if you have to drill them yourself.
Steps in Repotting
Pruning the Peace Lily: The only time Peace Lilies need pruning are when leaves yellow and the flower fades. Cut both with a clean blade as close to the soil level as possible.
