This plant is famous for its Air Purifier qualities. There are more than 3 varieties of peace lily (variable in leaf size & shape). However flowering pattern is same for all the varieties. Its stem is herbaceous but it does not need any supporting stick. This plant is shade loving. But we need to keep this at properly ventilated area. If we keep inside closed room without proper ventilation, its health may deteriorate. Exposure of this plant to morning sunlight for 1-2 hours will be added advantage for its better growth. It blooms white flowers indoor also. Ideal temperature for its blooming is 20 -300 C. Its flowers stay on the plant for approximately 2 weeks. If we care for them properly, they live long.
Water & Sunlight: Please do not overwater. Give water, only when upper soil is about to dry. This prefers to grow in shady areas.
Soil: Over fertilising may adversely affect this plant. Proper drainage in pot is necessary to avoid root rot. We should prepare the potting mix in such way so that water should reach bottom of pot within 15-25 seconds. This is the basic quality of fast draining soil. Such soil also contributes to make the potting mix more aerated. To make the ideal potting mix for this plant, 20 % drainage media (river sand/ Leca/ Perlite/ Pumice or rice husk- use any one of them) in potting mix should be available. In rest of the potting mix, we should mix vermi-compost (20 %), coco peat (30 %) and garden soil (30%).
