How do you take care of a Spathiphyllum?

The best location

It is best to give the Spoon plant a location with indirect sunlight to half shade. About 2 to 3 hours of direct sunlight is more than enough. As soon as the plant gets too much sunlight, its leaves turn yellow. If there is too little sunlight, the Spoon plant will produce green flowers. The most ideal location is at a north-facing window.

Watering the Peace Lily

The Spathiphyllum consumes quite a lot of water. As soon as the plant needs more water it will let you know. It leaves its leaves and flowers hanging when there is too little water in its soil. A good splash of water will help the dried out Peace Lily to get back on its feet in no time. We recommend to water the Peace Lily at least twice a week in the summer. In winter you can water once a week. However, always keep a close eye on the soil. If the soil is completely dry again after a week, you can water more often or more.

Plant nutrition

After 6 to 8 weeks, all nutrients from the soil are already consumed by the Peace Lily. We therefore recommend to use plant food. For the Peace Lily it is best to opt for flowering indoor plants plant nutrition.

Repotting

It is wise to repot the Peace Lily immediately after purchase. After this first time repotting is only necessary after 2 to 3 years. During repotting, use a flowerpot that is at least 20% larger than its previous one. The best period to provide your plant with fresh soil and a new flowerpot is in spring.

Air purifying function

The Peace Lily soon becomes one of the most air-purifying plants there is. You might not expect it, but the Peace Lily is really extremely good at purifying the air. It also removes harmful substances and foul odours in no time at all.

Is the Peace Lily poisonous?

Unfortunately, the special Peace Lily is slightly poisonous. Eating the leaves, by children or pets, can be harmful. In all cases, contact a doctor and keep an eye on striking symptoms.

Diseases and peculiarities

If the conditions are too dry, the Peace Lily plant can suffer from spider mite. To prevent spider mites, you can use the plant syringe as a preventative measure. Doesn’t the Peace Lily plant suffer from pests or diseases? If so, we recommend to choose a chemical or biological pesticide. Look on the packaging for the right quantities.
