Peace lily care tips

Peace lilies are tropical evergreen plants and are easy to care for. Here are some proven care tips, if followed you will enjoy its healthy blooming seasons:

Sunlight: Place your plant beside an east-facing window, where it can get eight to twelve hours of indirect sunlight. Both indoor and outdoor peace lily, love bright and indirect light. They are known to flourish in low-light states but will create more irregular spathe buds and will have a looser growth pattern.

Water: They enjoy good moisture, but can’t stand clogged water. Wait for the soil to dry out a bit before watering. The usual water frequency is once a week. Peace lilies would instead be under-watered rather than overwatered. The dose of water your plants will require relies on the height and depth of your pot and the drainage abilities of the soil. As a general approach, water just when the upper surface of the soil is dry.

Soil pH: Slightly acidic pH (5-6.5) level is what they like. 

Soil type: Soil type: They are inclined to rot in saturated or damp soil situations but, strangely they can be cultivated in water alone. It’s easier for the roots to get oxygen from the water than clogged soil. If you like to raise your peace lily in water, the peak of the plant should sit further than the waterline to stop the rot. Peace lilies need a rich, quick-draining potting mixture or compost to flourish.

Humidity: Peace lilies love moisture in the air. They thrive in humidity levels of 60 percent or above.

Repotting: Repotting the plant every few years is good practice. Repotting is essential if the roots come out from the drainage hole. Use a slightly bigger than the recent pot to avoid giving them a shock.


Peace lilies do fine with the periodic dosage of a slow-release fertilizer but don’t go overboard with the application. Limit feedings to once a month throughout the spring and summer and keep an eye out for yellowing or browning in the leaves. Over-fertilization makes peace lilies inclined to leaf burn which is also called fertilizer burn. If you are developing a peace lily in water independently,  you can add some liquid fertilizer to the water every two weeks to fulfill its soil nutrients. 


Peace lilies do great from frequent pruning and deadheading. After a branch has created a “flower”, it will not create another one and will ultimately turn brown and fail. Prune back stalks like this at the bottom of the plant to make space for fresh stalks. Then, prune out yellow or shriveled leaves and spathe buds with sterilized shears.   


Appearance wise most peace lily varieties are almost similar. But all of them are slightly different from each other, some are differentiated by their size, and some by the amount of flowers they can produce, and there are rare types with variegated leaves. No matter what kind it is, the care is easy. So, you should at least get one type from the list and grace your indoor.
