About Peace Lily
The peace 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. ☮️

Peace Lily may have difficulty thriving, and will drop leaves 🍃, without ample sunlight.
Place it less than 3 feet from a south-facing window to keep it happy during this time of reduced sunlight intensity in Portland, Oregon ⛅.
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 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.
Lasts forever with love. I’ve propagated a brand new plant out of the original mother root and within a year, she’s fully lush and gorgeous. Very dramatic plants—you will know when they’re ready for whatever because the leaves will sag as if fainting.
This plant loves a routine and if the routine is switched or you replay it or simply move it to another window it may be difficult to get to grow again. Also a certain number of conditions must be met before it blooms again. I do not even know the all the conditions.
