Learning how to care for a peace lily plant indoors requires some basic knowledge about lilies. Peace lilies are not easy to grow, nor do they have many common indoor plant varieties. Many people start out by growing seedless hybrid roses, but when these fail or if the flower blooms too early, most gardeners turn to lilies. They’re beautiful to look at and easy to maintain, but their propensity to die after just one year of constant exposure to light and heat causes many gardeners to dread the thought of trying to grow a plant inside.
Peace lilies were traditionally grown as a decorative ornamental plant in ponds, and they’re also commonly used in home weddings and as centerpieces. They come in many different color and species, including the rare white-flowered peace lily plant. Many peace lily plants come with an attractive foliage that ranges from green to pink to purple. Some varieties bloom in clusters of three, and others are solitary plants. Peace lilies are a fairly common indoor plant.
One reason that so many people choose to grow a peace lily plant indoors is because it’s so easy to care for. It doesn’t require the extra space and attention that other indoor plants need. The majority of these are very sensitive to high temperatures and can often be successfully kept at room temperature. This is especially important if you live in a temperate climate where the summer months are often hotter and colder months cold.
The best way to care for a peace lily plant indoors is to make sure that it gets regular watering. They don’t like being overwatered, so it’s important to keep them in moist, but not dry conditions. You should empty the container once a week or just once a month and repot the plant when it looks overcrowded. This will prevent overcrowding, but also encourages new growth and keeps the plant healthy.
You can prune your peace lily plant indoors if you wish, but it’s not recommended. Picking off too much foliage can stunt the plant and cause it to stop growing altogether. If you want to keep the leaves on your plant, then you can pinch back any dead foliage.
Peace lilies are not hardy plants, but they do need a bit of special attention. Because they’re grown primarily as a decorative flower, many gardeners fail to provide adequate light and water for them. If you want to care for a peace lily plant indoors, then make sure you provide the proper light and water that the plant needs. Watering is especially important during the hot, dry summer months. Make sure your potted lily doesn’t get dried out and stay green by regularly giving them an watering.
