How to Care for a Peace Lily Houseplant


Peace lilies are often grown as houseplants because they require a minimal amount of care. The plant produces blooms that look similar to calla lilies. The peace lily thrives in low and moderate light and well-drained potting soil. Peace lilies can remove toxins from the air and add a decorative touch to a room. Caring for the peace lily properly will ensure that it remains healthy.

Difficulty: Moderately Easy


Things You’ll Need:

  • Spray bottle
  • Water-soluble fertilizer
  • Washcloth
  • Scissors
  1. Place the peace lily plant in a warm location away from direct sunlight. The plant needs indirect sunlight to grow because direct sunlight will burn the leaves.

  2. Water the peace lily with rainwater or distilled water so that the soil remains moist. Fill a spray bottle with the water and mist daily to provide humidity for the plant.

  3. Add a water-soluble fertilizer to the peace lily once a month, per label instructions.

  4. Wipe the foliage with a damp washcloth weekly. This will remove dust and debris from the foliage.

  5. Cut the flower stems back to the base of the plant when they begin to die.

Tips & Warnings

  • Transplant the peace lily to a larger pot when the roots become crowded.
