A Guide to Caring for Your Peace Lily

The Peace Lily is a popular flowering plant because of its easy maintenance and lush foliage. If you have recently purchased a Peace Lily, or are thinking about adding one to your collection, this guide will show you the basics o how to properly take care of it.

Watering Requirements

Peace Lilies thrive in moist soil. Water your plant once every 7-10 days, or when the top two inches of soil appear dry. When watering, be sure not to overdo it; too much water can cause root rot and other issues that can harm your plant. If you forget to water, don’t worry! Overwatering is more harmful than underwatering; just make sure you soak the soil once you remember.

 

Temperature & Humidity

Your Peace Lily will do best in temperatures between 18-24 Celsius. In cooler temperatures, the leaves may turn brown; in warmer temperatures, they may yellow. They prefer high humidity levels—around 50-60% so if the room your plant is in lacks moisture, consider misting the leaves with water every day or two.

Feeding

Peace Lilies do not require regular fertiliser but will benefit from monthly feedings during their growing season (generally spring through summer). Use a fertiliser specifically designed for houseplants - we recommend Munash Organics Food. Do not fertilise during winter months as this may cause damage to the roots due to overfeeding them.

Taking care of a Peace Lily is relatively easy as long as some basic guidelines are followed. Be sure to keep an eye on your plant's soil moisture levels by watering only when necessary and avoiding overwatering at all costs. Additionally, keep an eye on temperature and humidity levels while providing occasional feedings during its growing season for best results. With proper care and attention, your Peace Lily will stay happy and healthy year round!
