I'm native to the jungles of South America and make a great houseplant with my glossy green leaves and my piercing white flowers; I'm also a superstar at cleaning the air.
The Stem Pledge
To see me at my best
Keep me in light shade and keep my soil moist but not wet. I also love humidity.
Height is measured from the bottom of the plastic nursery pot (please allow a +/-10% variance). Diameter is the nursery pot diameter, so to get a pot that fits, the pot diameter should be bigger.
How to look after me
I like bright, indirect light but can also cope well in light shade.
From Spring to Autumn keep the compost moist and water more sparingly in winter allowing the top soil to dry out in-between waterings.
Feed me once a month in spring and summer.
I love a regular misting; keep me away from cold draughts.
Snip of any fading flowers or yellowing leaves; I can also be fussy with tap water, so give me filtered water if you can.
Things to look out for
Whole plant droopingYour peace lily needs water, give it a good soaking and allow to drain for a few hours.
Brown patches on leavesThis is often a sign of sunburn, move out of direct sun.
Brown leaf tipsThis can be a sign of low humidity, irregular watering or due to the use of hard water.
ToxicityAll parts are poisonous - keep away from pets and children.
Air-purificationOne of the most effective plants at removing benzene, formaldehyde, trichloroethylene, ammonia, xylene, toluene and several other known pollutants from the air.
