Peace Lily Plants – Care Of Peace Lilies


By: Heather Rhoades

Peace lilies (Spathiphyllum), also known as closet plants, are a popular choice for offices and homes. When it comes to indoor plants, peace lily plants are some of the easiest to care for. But, while peace lily plant care is easy, proper growing conditions are still important. Let’s take a look at the care of peace lilies.

Growing Peace Lily As Houseplants

Peace lilies make excellent houseplants for the home or office. These lovely plants not only brighten up a living space, but are also excellent at cleaning the air of the room they are in. Most commonly, these plants have dark green leaves and white “flowers.” But what most people think of as the flower is actually a specialized leaf bract that grows hooded over the flowers.

Like many popular indoor plants, peace lilies enjoy medium to low light. Which kind of light you need to provide will depend more on what you want your peace lily plant to look like. Peace lilies that are placed in more light tend to produce the lovely white spathes and flowers more, while peace lilies in low light will bloom less and will look more like a traditional foliage plant.

Peace Lily Plant Care

One of the most common mistakes in the care of peace lilies is overwatering. Peace lilies are far more tolerant of underwatering than overwatering, which is one of the most common reasons for a peace lily to die. Because of this, you should never water peace lily plants on a schedule. Rather, you should check them once a week to see if they need to be watered. Simply touch the top of the soil to see if it is dry. If it is, water your peace lily. If the soil is still damp, the plant does not need to be watered. Some people will go so far as to wait until their peace lily is starting to droop before watering their plant. As these plants are very drought tolerant, this method does not harm the plant and will prevent overwatering.

Peace lilies do not need frequent fertilizing. Fertilizing with a balanced fertilizer one to two times per year will be enough to keep the plant happy.

Peace lilies also benefit from repotting or dividing when they outgrow their containers. Signs that a peace lily plant has outgrown its container include drooping less than a week after being watered and crowded, deformed leaf growth. If you are repotting, move the plant into a pot that is at least 2 inches larger than its current pot. If you are dividing, use a sharp knife to cut through the center of the rootball and replant each half in its on container.

Since the wide leaves on peace lilies tend to be a dust magnet, you should either wash or wipe down the leaves at least once a year. This will help it process sunlight better. Washing the plant can be done by either setting it in the bath and giving it a short shower or by placing it in a sink and letting the tap run over the leaves. Alternatively, the leaves of your peace lily plant can also be wiped down with a damp cloth. Avoid using commercial leaf shine products, however, as these can clog the pores of the plant.

A mushroom in with my Peace Lily!!

How embarassing! I just found a mushroom in my peace lily, and some more smaller mushrooms ready to come up. The Peace Lily is getting droopy quicker than usual, so I had watered it more, which probably was even more favorable for the mushroom. I also found some fungus at the bottom of the pot around the drainage hole.

So now what do I do? I can repot the plant, even using sterile potting soil, but there will still be fungus with the plant itself. I don't want to use a man made fungicide, so if anyone has any organic solutions I'd love to know. So far the plant is healthy, except for the drooping. Perhaps I also need to put some rocks at the bottom of the pot so it will drain better? I've never had this happen before, so I'm stumped!

Okay, my problem is getting worse. The plant is even droopier. Does anyone have any suggestions? I dont' want to lose my peace lily!

Dana, If you find it's wilting from too much water, post again because then maybe someone can help with that. I don't know about tropicals, but some perennials can be saved from crown rot if you catch it early enough. We have several peace lilies at work and two get so much water from everyone that the pots have puddles in them, and they have no problem. I'm sure that isn't the best situation, but they never droop, and the others droop when they're dry. We even had someone growing a small one in water.

I searched the internet and found your problem or a similar one in just a few various links. One had no answer, one said the mushrooms wouldn't harm the plant and offered no other explanation, and the third was for a yellow fungus on a jade plant. That one said if the plant is suffering, it could possibly be because it's competing with the mushrooms for water. Here's the link where I found this:
http://www.ext.nodak.edu/extnews/newsrelease/2003/050803/05hortis.htm
Another link said to just keep taking out the mushrooms and eventually they'd stop growing.

I don't know if the mushrooms in your plant are harmful to it, or if something else is happening that you're not noticing, and I don't know how to determine that. Try to inspect it to make sure there isn't something else making the plant droop or rot. It could even be coincidence and it's potbound and not getting enough water.

I really don't know the right answer for this. But if you're positive the plant is not wilting from too much water, I think the most natural way to treat it would be to do what the link said - repot the plant with sterile soil and clean the pot with bleach water. If the roots are real dry, maybe a good soak in the shower for a few minutes would be good.

Thank you for the information! The question about the yellow houseplant fungus sounded similar to my situation. I've had the plant for quite some time and haven't changed the watering schedule, I don't think. I did repot it a couple months ago, so maybe the soil I used had gone "bad" somehow. I'll try repotting it and checking it carefully for any sign of over or underwatering. It's good to know that besides some kind of competition issues the fungus shouldn't be harming the plant. I'll let you know how it goes. :)

Did you add any packaged compost?
Sometimes they are made up of used mushroom production medium, but I definately would *not* dare eat one!

Sometimes in the composting, mushroom spores will come in and grow or some of the materials had mushroom mycellia in it and under the right conditions, they grow mushrooms. This might indicate that the soil has been evenly moist (or wet) for a long period. (see wilt notes below.)

I too had a spath that grew a nice cluster of mushrooms earlier this summer, but they were too small to be the regular grocery store kind, so I'm thinking the spores or mycellia were from the grower's potting medium.

On wilting when the soil is still moist: Danger Will Robinson! Root Rot in the 'hood!
Spaths hate to sit in water and will surely rot. Never let them sit in a full saucer, always letting them drain fully before putting them back in one.

Once they are severely damaged, it is a big chore to get them to recover: cleaning off the affected parts to find (if any) some healthy roots, plus very controlled watering, new sterile potting soil, etc.and it is easier to just replace the plant, unless you like that sort of "petting" or if it is an heirloom or of sentimental value

Spaths like to go a bit dry between waterings,1- 2" top dry to *almost* a wilt, then a good but not excessive "soaking" watering. Don't let them actually wilt. Spaths have a remarkable ability to come back from even a flatout wilt, but yellowed leaves can result. The point is to let them surface dry some so that air can enter the soil.

Another sign of over-watering is black spots on the leaves and/or waterlogged patches (edema) more easily noticed by looking on the underside of the leaves. Too wet for the temperature will also produce blackening. They like it warm, but can tolerate cooler temps somewhat if they are kept on the dry side.

15 Gorgeous Indoor Plants for Homes of All Sizes and How to Take Care of Them

The journey to your own plant paradise begins now.

Splashing a lively shade on the wall or adding chintz-covered pillows to your sofa aren't the only ways to introduce a little color into your home. Sculpturally beautiful and loaded with personality, houseplants help bring a sense of the outdoors in without disrupting your overall design style. However, with so many species and requirements, it can feel a bit overwhelming trying to figure which plant may fit perfectly with your lifestyle.

For novice green thumbs, it's important to take into account how much care you want to put into nurturing your plant. If you are not used to sticking to strict watering schedules, you may want for an easy-going, low-light succulent, while someone with a little more gardening experience may want to look into investing in a tropical variety, which tends to need a little more attention. Whatever your commitment level, we've gathered a list of the best indoor plants to brighten up your interiors, from a few trusty favorites to unique finds you're sure to love. Plus, we've thrown in a couple of tips and tricks to ensure your new verdant friend thrives.

Native to Southeast Asia, the golden pothos is known for its heart-shaped green leaves with delicate yellow veining. These plants are fitting for the indoors because of their low maintenance and ability to filter gaseous toxins from the air. When placed in bright, indirect light, its veins can reach up to 10 feet if not trimmed. It's recommended to only water these plants every one to two weeks if you find that the leaves are turning completely yellow, you are overwatering your plant.

This delightful, coin-shaped beauty is most commonly known as the Chinese money plant. The Asiatic perennial herb is native to the Yunnan Province of China and has been used as an ornamental plant for centuries. Pileas are notorious self-propagators, meaning you'll likely find a little green friend popping up from the soil. Try finding a place in your home that gets a consistent amount of indirect light to nurture one of your own.

Earning its name for its bouncy blades, the ponytail palm falls within the succulent family, preferring semi-dry conditions with bright light. This hardy, low-maintenance plant is perfect for pet owners or new parents, as it is nontoxic to humans and pets. Pro tip: Don't water your ponytail palm until the soil is completely dry. Because it is susceptible to root rot, aim to only water your plant once every two weeks during the warmer months and even less frequently in the winter.

Move over, fiddle leaf figs. The wildly beautiful Monstera has taken your spot as Instagram’s favorite houseplant. Known for their dramatic, Swiss cheese–like leaves, Monstera deliciosa is an evergreen, tropical plant native to Central America. These lively beauts can tolerate low light but tend to grow faster with fuller leaves in a bright spot. Wait to water your Monstera until the soil is about 70 percent dry, and only water it until the liquid flows through the pot’s drain hole.

The Dracaena Marginata, or dragon tree, is often used by designers as a way to add interest to a narrow corner with its spiky leaves and curvy stems. This low-maintenance stunner adapts to most environments but prefers medium, indirect sunlight. If you notice the leaves start to turn a pale color or are growing slowly, try moving your dragon tree into a more well-lit area of the home. It's extremely easy to overwater this plant, so make sure to wait until the top half of the soil is dry before watering again.

For those who tend to be a bit forgetful or are houseplant novices, the ZZ plant requires less water than most and doesn't need too much bright light. Its smooth and shiny leaves help indicate whether it needs more or less water. If you notice the individual leaflets are starting to wrinkle, try giving your plant a drink of water. It's important to keep this leafy friend out of reach of pets because it is poisonous if ingested.

The peace lily makes a sophisticated addition to those tricky low-light rooms. These shade-loving plants are known for their fragrant spathes (the white flower-like spike) and air-purifying qualities. Peace lilies are more susceptible to mealybugs and scale, so it's smart to keep an insecticidal soap on hand to wipe down the plant. It also tends to droop when a bit thirsty, letting you know it's time for watering.

Native to Southern and Central Africa, snake plants are technically succulents that prefer medium to bright light and only need watering once every two weeks. Its swordlike leaves with vibrant yellow edges remove toxins like formaldehyde, xylene, and toluene from indoor air. Fun fact: Snake plants release oxygen throughout the night, unlike most plants, which release oxygen during the day.

The bird's nest fern gets its name from rippled leaves and new fronds that resemble bird eggs. The fern's fronds can actually appear wavier when it receives more light. However, it's native to rainforests in Asia, Africa, and Australia and thrives in low-light areas. Do not water directly into the center of your fern, as the crown rots easily.

Otherwise referred to as satin pothos, this gray trailing vine looks divine placed on a shelf surrounded by books or on the kitchen window sill. The silver satin has a reputation as one of the easiest houseplants to keep alive for its ability to adapt to any environment. For those learning to propagate, this fast-growing vine may be a great option.

Unlike other species within the peperomia family, this easy-going houseplant with watermelon-esque leaves should never be placed in direct sunlight. Too much light causes the colors and patterns of the leaves to fade. Because it is native to the cool understory of South American rainforests, watermelon peperomia tends to only need to be watered when its leaves droop. When looking for an eye-catching planter for your new friend, opt for a planter on the smaller side as peperomia prefers to be root bound.

Lush and dramatic, the Kentia palm tends to be a forgiving plant for those ready to take on a larger project. This palm can grow as tall as 10 feet high, making it a dramatic choice for the dining room. Unlike other plants that may thrive in various types of containers, Kentia palms need to be planted in a pot with adequate drainage. Yellowing of the leaves can indicate water is not draining adequately and could lead to root rot.

Plants falling into the Calathea family are often known for their eccentric leaves that fold up during nighttime. Rattlesnake plants often scorch or fade in bright light, so it's best to keep your tropical plant in an area with filtered light. Be prepared for your watering schedule for your plant to change depending on the season. During the spring and summer, you may need to water your plant more often to ensure the soil is constantly damp. As a tropical indoor plant, you also need to make sure to mist your rattlesnake plant on a regular basis to help emulate a high-humidity climate.

Growing up to 8 feet tall, alocasia plants make a gutsy statement with their arrow-head shaped leaves and thick, white veins. Alocasias are not the plant for the forgetful gardener and require a regular watering schedule to keep the soil moist. You may also want to consider giving your bold plant frequent, warm showers in the sink to ensure it's getting enough moisture. Don't be alarmed if your plant starts to droop or yellow in the winter months. Alocasias will go through a dormant period, but you should continue to water them until they pop back up in the spring.

Consider yourself an experienced houseplant owner? A citrus tree will be the rewarding challenge you've been looking for. We recommend going with a dwarf lime tree that self-pollinates and yields the quickest crop. Because most citrus trees require 8 to 12 hours of sunlight a day, place your tree in the sunniest part of your home. Also, get in the habit of spritzing it regularly, as citrus trees prefer lots of moisture in the air.


10 Great Indoor Plants to Place in Your Bedroom

If you’re having trouble trying to decide which are the best indoor plants for the bedroom, here are some popular species to choose from:

1. Aloe Vera Plants for the Bedroom

Everyone is familiar with aloe vera. Their vibrant leaves are not only beautiful, but they’re also useful for treating rashes, dry skin, or mild burns. Aloe vera plants love a lot of sunlight, so make sure to place them near a sunny window. While aloe vera plants grow slowly, they can become quite large, so make sure to limit the growth by placing them in small pots and occasionally removing larger leaves.

2. Spider Plant

If your bedroom has somewhat of a “wild” theme, a potted spider plant will fit right in! This plant is named because of the long, thin leaves growing out from the center of the plant, making them resemble spider legs. Spider plants love indirect sunlight, well-draining soil, and occasional watering and are a great plant for the bedroom.

3. Zanzibar Gem (ZZ Plant)

With glossy leaves bearing a stunning emerald hue, the name of this plant is certainly well-earned. Zanzibar Gems are native to Africa, which makes them one of the most drought-resistant species on this list. In fact, you only need to water this plant once a month! This is the perfect bedroom plant for busy people who might accidentally neglect their plant.

4. Peace Lily

The peace lily has become one of the most popular choices for indoor plants. What’s more, they’re undeniably beautiful plants because of their dark green leaves and white flowers. If you want the flowers to thrive, place the Peace Lily in an area with bright but indirect sunlight. Then, water it once a week. Make sure the soil is moist, but not overly wet. Take note, however, that Peace Lilies are toxic if ingested. So, if you have pets or small children, please place it somewhere out of reach.

5. Bunny Ear Cactus

There is just no getting around it: bunny ear cacti are adorable! Also known as Angel Wings, they love high, direct sunlight, so make sure to place them in a sunny area. Since they are cacti, they don’t need frequent watering. However, you may need to remove the smaller growths occasionally to keep them sized right for your bedroom.

6. Marble Queen Pothos

If you want to fill your bedroom with indoor plants, then the Marble Queen Pothos is a great choice. They grow fast and can be propagated quickly from cuttings. These plants only need occasional watering and indirect sunlight. So, you’ll get a lot of plant for a little bit of effort. What’s more, Pothos plants climb, so you give it space to enjoy a gorgeous trailing vine in a few months.

7. Calathea Plants for the Bedroom

Are you looking for striking colors other than green? Then the Calathea is the perfect plant for you! Their leaves have a gorgeous reddish-purple hue which can come in either the medallion or the rattlesnake variety. Calathea are also quite forgiving when it comes to sunlight or water. Their low maintenance nature makes them one of the most ideal plants for the bedroom.

8. Rubber Plant

Another eye-catching species, rubber plants have shiny leaves that have shades of dark green and burgundy. It’s no wonder they’re popular choices for indoor plants. They can be easily trained to thrive in small pots, are drought-tolerant, and are not sensitive to temperature changes.

9. Ficus Little Fiddle

If you want a bit more of a challenge, the Ficus Little Fiddle might just be right up your alley. Compared to other plants on this list, they are a bit more finicky when it comes to their growing conditions. They need humid, warm climates and a regular watering schedule. However, if you are up for the challenge, Ficus plants are beautiful, long-lived, and can be propagated with cuttings.

10. Snake Plants for the Bedroom

This plant is arguably one of the most popular indoor plants. The snake plant is eye-catching and thrives with very little effort or care. They do not need frequent watering and can be happy in both sunny and shaded areas. One interesting bit of trivia about the snake plant is that it’s also called the “Mother-in-Law’s Tongue” plant. It supposedly resembles the sharp tongue of a mother-in-law.
