Common 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.
