PEACE LILY CARE TIPS
The peace lily is a striking plant when used indoors. They bloom in the spring with long-lasting flowers that hover gracefully over the leaves on thin stalks. They can also be forced to bloom in the fall or winter. A well-grown Peace Lily may bloom twice a year, resulting in several months of flowers.
- Peace lilies are shade-loving plants. Keep them out of direct afternoon sunlight. 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.
- Peace lilies like a rich, loose potting soil containing plenty of organic material. Keep the soil moist and do not overwater. Water and mist the plant frequently because they love humidity like in a rainforest.
- Peace lilies are sensitive to chemicals commonly found in tap water. If your water is highly chlorinated, use filtered water if possible so you can avoid brown leaf tips.
- These plants really prefer moist warmth. Keep your room temperature at 65 to 80 degrees Fahrenheit, since they won’t do well with cold temperatures.
- Feed your peace lilies bi-weekly in the summer with slow-release PRO ORGANIC® Plant Food at the beginning of the season. Feed every 6 weeks or so in late winter.
- Repot peace lilies annually in the spring. They’re easy to propagate by division while out of the pot. Large plants can be divided into clumps, which can then be independently potted.
