About Peace Lilly
Peace lilies are tropical, evergreen plants that thrive on the forest floor, where they receive dappled sunlight and consistent moisture. Replicating these conditions in the home is the key to getting your peace lily to be happy and healthy.
With enough light, peace lilies may produce white to off-white flowers in the early summer and continue to bloom throughout the year.
Peace lilly comes in Two sizes:
4″ Pot: Current height (including pot) and spread: 9″-12″ x 8″-12″
6″ Pot: Current height (including pot) and spread: 15″-22″ x 12″-20″
Peace lilly will arrive pre-planted with plenty of healthy compost in a plastic growpot with holes in the bottom to allow for drainage when watering. As a result, this growpot will require an additional pot, which you’ll find recommended in the correct size below.
Peace Lilly prefers bright indirect sunlight so a shady spot of a brightly lit room is perfect. It important for this plant to have a high level of humidity to keep thriving. You can provide that by misting regularly. Lilly also likes it when you clean her leaves when they get a little dusty, which is best done with a damp cloth.
Peace Lilly doesn’t like direct sunlight on her leaves, as it will fade her impressive markings.
LOOKING AFTER THIS PLANT
Peace Lilly will thank you for keeping her soil moist between March-October by giving her a good soak approximately once per week. If her soil is still moist after one week, leave her alone for a couple of days. Between November-February reduce watering to once every 10-15 days, allowing her soil to dry out between waterings. . Mist every other day to increase humidity, this will prevent browning on the tips.
GOING THE EXTRA MILE
If given a choice, Peace Lilly loves to be watered with filtered or rainwater instead of tap.

All parts of the Peace Lily plant contain calcium oxalate—a substance that may cause stomach and respiratory irritation if ingested in large amounts. Keep peace lilies out of reach of small children and pets. Other common plants that contain calcium oxalate include daffodils, true lilies, and hyacinths.
