Peace Lily

Spathiphyllum wallisii

Associated with serenity, the peace lily is an excellent choice for those seeking a sense of calm.

Peace lilies are relatively easy-going but will do best in bright indirect light and with regular watering. Check up on it every week, and if the top inch or so of the soil feels dry then give it a drink. Peace lilies also love humidity, making this a good plant for a well-lit bathroom.

Plant Bio

Originating in the tropical rainforests of Central and South America, the peace lily was brought to Europe in the 1800s. It was given its calming name as its spathe was thought to look like white sails or flags, a universal symbol of peace.

It gained popularity due to its easy-going nature – this plant will cope in most conditions. However most notable, perhaps, is its acceptance of very low light levels. Though it will obviously flourish most in sunlight, the peace lily will also do just fine in darker rooms.
