How To Care For Peace Lily
The peace lily is a really easy to care for plant on the water front. Their leaves may start to wilt and fall when they are dehydrated, but top them back up and watch the peace lily spring back to life.
As a tropical plant, the peace lily wants temperatures above 16°C and away from cold, drafty windows. Keep them out of direct afternoon sunlight, but in a bright, well-lit area. An east-facing window is ideal, as they will be exposed to the bright morning sun but avoid the intensity of mid-day rays. Keep away from cold draughts through the winter as your peace lily won’t like the cold wind.
Peace lilies enjoy high humidity. Misting their leaves or placing their pot atop a moistened tray of gravel can help to increase humidity around the plant.
