How to Care for Peace Lily Houseplants
I have done plenty of research online and still cannot find the proper care and method to take care of my Peace Lily. Some instructions say partial light others say full light and a few others say dim indirect light. I am new to indoor growing so any advice would be great. I also have, an English Ivy, an Ocean Spider plant, and a bamboo palm. All except the lily seem to be thriving. Do you have any advice or tips that could help me?
Here are some care tips for a Peace Lily.
Peace Lily houseplants do well in low, medium, or indirect bright light
. Too much light causes the leaves to fade and lose their vibrant dark green color. Too little light and Peace Lily houseplants can’t develop flowers. Direct sunlight burns the leaves of Peace Lily houseplants. I keep mine in medium light.
Water: Allow the top 50% of the soil to dry out before watering. If a Peace Lily Plant severely droops, yellow leaves appear after it’s watered. Over-watering causes the leaves to get ugly brown tips. Let the plant droop slightly before watering and water from the bottom (allow the plant to sit in water for 15 minutes, then get rid of the water.
Fertilize Peace Lily houseplants every other month when the plants are actively growing with a basic houseplant food at 1/2 the recommended strength. Giving a Peace Lily too much fertilizer
causes brown leaf tips.
Temperature: Peace Lily houseplants grow well in 65-85 degree temperatures.
