SpathiphyllumCommon names: peace lily, spathiphyllum

Description: Dark green leaves can be more than a foot long. Plants are uniform and full. They produce hood-shaped white blooms, or spathes, which surround a creamy-white spadix. Plants grow 1 1/2 to 4 feet tall, depending on the cultivar. Some cultivars are developed to be compact.

Special care: Keep soil moist because plants wilt easily. Provide good drainage and empty excess water from saucers and sleeves. Wash individual leaves. Provide bright, indirect light and temperatures of 65 to 90F/18 to 32 C. Low light slows the blooming cycle. However, too much direct sunlight may cause burn spots on leaves.

Ask your florist about plants.

It is natural for the flower to turn green as it ages. Peace lily flowers normally last about 2 months from first appearance. The flowers turn green when they have been pollinated and seed has been set. Once the flower turns brown or green, remove the flower stalk at the base of the plant. Also, remove any yellow leaves that may occur from time to time at the soil level. You can extend the blooming time of your spathiphyllum by keeping water off of the blooms. Next time you mist your plant, keep the mist on the leaves and off the flowers.

My peace lily is beautiful and doing well in indirect light with sufficient watering. But why have the flowers turned from white to green? Any answers?

Florists have always known that flowers make people happy, and now scientific research proves flower power. Aboutflowers.com highlights university research proving the emotional and behavioral benefits of flowers and plants. Rutgers research shows that the presence of flowers triggers happy emotions, heightens feelings of life satisfaction and affects social behavior in a positive manner far beyond what is normally believed. Another Rutgers study demonstrates that flowers ease depression, inspire social networking and refresh memory as we age. A Harvard study reveals that people feel more compassionate toward others, have less worry and anxiety, and feel less depressed when fresh cut flowers are present in the home. And a Texas A&M study demonstrates that workers' idea generation, creative performance and problem-solving skills improve substantially in workplace environments that include flowers and plants.
