- The Peace Lily, also known as the White Sail Plant or Spathiphyllum, is one of the most popular plants to grow indoors.
- If people only knew that it filters out five dangerous toxins from the air, it would be the most popular of all!
- The toxins include benzene, formaldehyde, trichloroethylene, xylene, and ammonia.
- A standard well-draining, nutrient-rich potting soil will work well for peace lilies.
- If you find it holds too much moisture, add some perlite or coarse sand to the mixture.
- If you want to make your own potting mix, add equal parts of garden soil, coarse sand, and perlite.
- The soil should be well-aerated and in a pot with a drainage hole to prevent root rot.
- Peace lilies aren’t fussy and they really don’t need much fertilizer.
- The best time to apply peace lily fertilizer is when the plant is actively growing or producing blooms.
- As a general rule, two or three feedings throughout the growing season is plenty.
- If you choose to feed your plant more often, use a very diluted fertilizer.
- Avoid overfeeding, as too much fertilizer may create brown spots on the leaves.
- If the flowers are a little green around the gills instead of creamy white, you are probably overdoing the fertilizer.
- Either cut back or dilute the concentration.
- Peace lilies prefer light partial shade and can tolerate fluorescent lights.
- In fact, some have been known to thrive in rooms with no windows at all.
- Yellowing leaves indicate that the light is too strong, and brown leaves or streaks indicate scorching from direct sunlight.
- Consider placing the plant six to eight feet away from a north- or west-facing window.
- If you’re wondering how often to water a peace lily, one tip is to wait for the plant to droop slightly before watering.
- One of the great advantages of caring for the peace lily is the fact that it sags a bit when it needs water, essentially telling you when it’s thirsty.
- In general, water at least once a week and keep the soil moist.
- In a warmer climate, spritz the leaves with soft or distilled water.
- Water your plant less often in winter.
- Peace lilies can be sensitive to chlorine.
- If your municipal water system is heavily chlorinated, fill a container with water and then allow it to stand overnight so the chlorine can percolate out before pouring into the peace lily.
