This plant stands out for adapting well to indoor environments, can be used in various rooms of the house and still has a striking and delicate appearance, making the environment much more charming. With that in mind, we decided to share this article with several important information about the peace lily, as well as step-by-step instructions for planting and tips for caring for and decorating your home.

Meet the peace lily

Natural from South America, the peace lily (Spathiphyllum Wallisian) is also known as the “white flag” or spatophilus. This plant stands out for its bright and intense green leaves, with an elongated and exuberant shape, and for its flowers in the form of white, delicate and elongated spikes.

Did you find this description strange? It’s because, in fact, from a biological point of view, that white part that looks like a giant petal is a bract, that is, a differentiated leaf that develops to protect and highlight the inflorescence, which is the ear, the region that contains the material that the plant uses to reproduce.

Anyway, the “flower” of this lily is considered a symbol of peace due to its color and delicacy. In addition, this plant grows fast in summer, can develop lush volume and can even be planted in pots or in clumps and borders protected by coverings such as trees and walls.

How to plant peace lily?

For your peace lily to develop well, it is essential to take some precautions when planting. That’s why we’ve set out a simple step-by-step guide, which will help you in this process. Check out!

Necessary materials

  • A vase at least 20cm high and 20cm wide in the opening at the top. Remembering that the vase needs to be drilled, otherwise, it is necessary to open the holes for water drainage;
  • Expanded clay, stones, or other material used in drainage;
  • Bidim blanket , neutral TNT fabric or white fabric (it can be that old shirt);
  • Substrate suitable for planting (prepared land);
  • Leaves, dry grass, pine bark, vermiculite or other material that can be used as ground cover;
  • Peace lily seedlings.

Step by step to plant peace lily

  • Place a layer of expanded clay or other draining material at the bottom of the pot, in an amount sufficient to cover the holes;
  • Add the bidim blanket or fabric, responsible for creating a filter between the substrate and expanded clay, preventing the loss of nutrients during water drainage;
  • Then put some soil in the pot and center the seedling to check the depth of the clod. Then, fill with more soil until you reach the point where the plant’s clod begins;
  • Now, place the seedling in the pot and fill the sides with more soil until the pot is full, but be careful not to squeeze too much;
  • Water the plant well so that the soil settles and add the covering material.

How to care for the peace lily?

In the same way that succulents need care, the peace lily also needs to be cared for in order to grow and develop healthily. Therefore, we have separated some of the tips to help you take better care of this plant. Check the care list.

  • Water the plant 3-4 times a week. The peace lily likes moist soil, but it cannot be soaked. Therefore, this amount may be enough. However, on wet days, check the soil to see if you need to water again and sprinkle water on the peace lily flowers.
  • Keep the plant away from direct light, but in a bright environment. The peace lily is a shade plant, but it also needs sun exposure to grow. However, do not leave the plant in direct contact with the sun, as this can burn its leaves and flowers.
  • Fertilize every 14 days. For this, you can use 1 tablespoon of humus or other specific organic fertilizer for flowers.
  • Eliminate yellowing leaves and withered flowers at least once a week.
  • Transplant to a larger pot once a year after the flowering period ends. You can also take the shoots, which are small seedlings that grow next to the main plant, and plant them in another pot, so that the main plant’s roots have room to grow and absorb nutrients.
