This beauty from Hawaii is undemanding and makes an ideal indoor plant. The Spathiphyllum or peace lily rows throughout the year and produces arum-like flowers that last for weeks. The graceful, arching leaves will add a fresh zest of life to any corner. It is important to groom this plant to maintain its health. The brown leaves must be trimmed to soil level. The foliage must be wiped with tepid water to remove dust.

  • Light: Very tolerant to light, it will do well in semi-sun to full shade
  • Temperature: It thrives in the average home temperature, provided it stays above 15 degrees Celsium / 60 degrees Fahrenheit
  • Watering: The soil must be kept evenly moist throughout the year. It is tolerant to low humidity caused by central heating, although mist-spray during the summer months will improve foliage and flowers
  • Feeding: Once a month, from April through to September
  • Diseases and pests: The peace lily is trouble-free and faces no major threats from diseases or pests
  • Propagation: Older plants can be divided in spring to provide new plants. The thick rhizomes should be gently pulled apart, making sure that each piece of root has at least three or four leaves attached to it. Each piece must be planted in a separate pot.
