What is the Peace Lily plant ?

The Spathiphyllum Wallisii, more commonly known as the Calla Lily or Peace Lily, is one of the most popular houseplants in the world. Its luscious green leaves bring life to any room, and caring for the Peace Lily is very straightforward.

Another perk of the Peace Lily is that it can bloom throughout the year, producing the beautiful white spathe flower that the plant is known for. It is the perfect item for plant-lovers around the world, and can be appreciated all year long!

Light CareLight Care

The Peace Lily prefers bright, indirect light. They are also capable of growing properly in low, indirect light. However, the plant will not bloom as well without bright light, and it will lose some of its usual, tightly-packed structure

If possible, place your Peace Lily in an east-facing window, as this will allow it to experience less intense morning light.

Water CareWater Care

Keep the soil moist, but make sure not to overwater. If the white sails of the plant are beginning to brown, it is a sign that it requires more water. The Peace Lily is sensitive to chemicals commonly found in tap water, so filtered, room-temperature water when possible.

To check the water levels of your plant’s soil, place a water meter 6-8 inches into the soil, where it will give you an accurate indication. If you do n’t own a water meter, stick one finger knuckle-deep into the soil. At this depth, you will be able to accurately account for the soil’s level of moistness.

Food GuideFood Guide

Peace Lilies do not require heavy feeding, so providing it with a balanced household fertilizer every 6 weeks or so is ideal. If you are interested in seeing growth in the spring and summer seasons, begin this fertilization process late in the winter months.

Staff Holly Grain Pro-Tip:

The Peace Lily is best known for its elegant white and yellow flowers. To ensure that your Peace Lily yields the most beautiful possible flowers, make sure to provide it with a well-aerated potting soil that contains peat and other organic materials. This will allow your plant to enjoy a wealth of helpful nutrients, while also avoiding the dangers of root rot and other complications!
