How To Take Care Of Peace Lilies

Peace lilies are tough plants with gorgeous white blooms and green leaves. These lilies are attractive both with and without blossoms, making them excellent indoor plants. Plants of the Peace Lily grow to be about 1 to 3 feet tall, depending on the size of the pot in which they are put. Peace Lilies require little upkeep, so anyone can grow a beautiful plant at home by following a few simple guidelines.

Location

  • Peace lilies are best grown as floor plants because they grow up to 3 feet tall and have large, bold leaves (up to 10 inches long). They can be used to decorate room corners, table ends, or as centrepieces.
  • Because they can't resist extremes of heat or cold, it's best to keep them in a shady or partially shaded environment. They must be stored at a temperature of at least 15 degrees Celsius. Also, make sure the plant is in an area with plenty of humidity.
  • Peace lilies thrive in areas with medium to low light levels. If the plant's leaves turn yellow or brown, it's because it's getting too much light/direct light.

Watering

Peace lilies do not require a lot of water. As a result, there is no need to water them on a regular basis. It's time to water if the soil feels dry when you touch it. It doesn't need to be watered if it's damp. They will die if they are over-watered.

Fertilizing

The best time to fertilise is in the spring, when the plant's growth phase begins. Liquid fertiliser can be used once every two weeks when watering. The presence of brown patches on the leaves indicates that too much fertiliser has been applied. As a result, adjust the fertiliser as needed.

Cleaning

Because the leaves of this plant are so large, the dust that settles in them must be cleansed by washing or wiping them as needed. Place the plant in a sink and run it under the faucet for a few minutes to clean it.

Planting / Reproduction

Replace the old soil with new dirt once a year to ensure that Peace lilies grow nicely. Peace lilies grow more quickly in bright spaces than in dimly lit rooms. As a result, when a dense clump forms at the base and roots emerge, it's time to re-pot them. You might need to do it once or twice a year. When repotting, make sure the new pot is larger than the old.

Peace lilies are always reproduced by dividing them. Look for clusters where new leaves have started growing if you want to divide the plant.

A Final Note

If you want to purchase a Peace Lily plant for your house, please sure to follow the guidelines above. Also, refrain from cutting them. The scissors are only used to remove the plant's dry sections. Grow a peace lily and place it in the centre of your living space. It's more than just a lovely plant!
