About Peace Lily
The calla lily is a popular, elegant plant and not actually a lily at all! In fact, they’re more closely related to other houseplants like pothos and Monstera than actual lilies. The white ‘flowers’ are also not flowers, but specialized leaves that protect the tiny blossoms on the stalk in the center. Their ‘flowers’ may last as long as two months and they will continue to rebloom over time in the right conditions. ☮️

Most potting soils come with ample nutrients which plants use to produce new growth.
By the time your plant has depleted the nutrients in its soil it’s likely grown enough to need a larger pot anyway.
To replenish this plant's nutrients, repot your Peace Lily after it doubles in size or once a year—whichever comes first.
What other plant parents say
I love this plant! Large lush dark green leaves, and it “tells me” when she needs water….as it’s branches start to droop a bit….10-15 minutes after watering, it is upright and beautiful again. Also, although it likes lots of indirect sunlight, here in Phoenix AZ, she is happy being a bit farther away from my north facing window!
Will visibly droop when it needs watering. Water as soon as leaves droop otherwise the leaf tips are prone to getting brown.
Will push out leaves even in low light but if it receives medium indirect light the leaf size will be much bigger.
I got my Peace Lily’s and they brown easy which could be from me over or under watering them, but when they bloom they’re so pretty! They’re survivors, and sometimes collect some dust. Had some issues with my cat getting into the plants but she doesn’t get in them anymore!
i have a love hate relationship with this plant bc it’s so pretty but if i underwater by like a ml it it will be on the brink of dehydration but if i overwater it by a ml it is flooding. it is so dramatic. it drops a leaf every week but then grows it back. i don’t know if this plant is dying or not but it is a nuisance. 6/10.
