Peace Lily Plant Care
Peace lilies can do well without or without light, but depending on the amount of light they’ll receive, they’ll also look different. Medium to high light will make its flowers bloom, making it more of a showstopper, while low to medium light will make it more a foliage plant. Whichever type of light you have though, the peace lily will still strive and work hard to purify the air around you!
While peace lilies don’t care too much whether or not you give them sunlight, they certainly DO care if they’re been over watered. In fact, one of the most common ways for a peace lily to die IS because of over watering, so it’s always best to under water than over water. Instead of watering once a week like you would with most plants, check the soil – if it’s dry, go ahead and water it, but if it’s moist let it be.
Fertilize only once or twice a year – peace lilies do not need more than that.
Peace lilies will also benefit from re-potting or dividing once they’re outgrown their container. You’ll know they’ve outgrown their medium once they start drooping less than a week after being watered as well as crowded, deformed leaf growth. If re-potting, move the plant to a pot that’s at least 2 inches larger than its previous pot.
Peace lily leaves tend to attract a lot of dust, so you’ll need to gently wipe or wash them once or twice a year. This will also help the plant to process sunlight easier.
