The characteristic white bloom of the Peace Lily is said to be how it received its common name, representing the white flags of a ceasefire. This is recognised as one of the best plants for improving air quality, removing toxins such as formaldehyde, ammonia and carbon monoxide from the air. The flowers of a Peace Lily are in fact specially adapted leaves called a bract. It is native to South America and from the same family as a Flamingo Flower.
Neediness: an easy to care for houseplant, great for new plant parents. When the flowers begin to fade, cut off the stalks from the bottom of the stem. May require dusting with a damp cloth to clear pores and help the plant breathe.
Watering: wait until the top layer of soil is dry before watering gently, aim to keep the soil moist but not soggy. Peace Lilies are far more tolerant of under-watering than overwatering, which is one of the most common reasons for a peace lily to die. Brown tips can be an indication of overwatering. May benefit from an occasional misting.
Ideal location: bedrooms, living rooms, studies, bathrooms and kitchens
Rate of growth: in the right conditions a Peace Lily can reach between 2-3ft tall.
Temperature: avoid cold draughts and keep at a normal room temperature. Do not let temperature drop below 7c.
Pets: this plant is toxic to cats and dogs. See our range of pet friendly plants if your pet is prone to nibbling.
Also known as: Spathiphyllum wallisii
