Peace Lily Care

Indoor Peace Lily Plants: Growing A Peace Lily Plant

Light: Prefers medium, indirect sunlight. Yellow leaves generally indicate the Peace Lily is too wet. Definitely keep your plant out of direct sunlight.

Temperature: The Peace Lily makes a great house plant because it thrives in the indoor temperatures people enjoy. Keep it away from non-insulated windows and doorways.

Fertilizer: Feed moderately every 2 months. Over-fertilization can cause leaves to go brown. We recommend regular use of We the Wild Grow and We the Wild Support pellets.

Water:  Many growers wait for the plant to droop slightly before watering, allowing the plant to tell them when it’s thirsty. In general, water once a week and mist the leaves with soft or distilled water throughout the summer growing season. Water your plant less in winter.

If you find your plant completely depleted because you forgot to water for a while, just water and mist right away. Your plant will quickly revive.

Blooming:  The white blooms of the Peace Lily generally appear in the spring.   Very well cared for plants may bloom again in the autumn as well. Blooms last for two months or more. After blooms fade, a period of non-blooming follows.  If blooms start out green, the plant has been over-fertilised.

Re-potting the Peace Lily:  Re-pot the Peace Lily when roots are apparent or when it seems to be taking up all water provided every few days.

Pruning the Peace Lily

The only time Peace Lilies need pruning are when leaves yellow and the flower fades. Cut both with a clean blade as close to the soil level as possible.
