About Variegated 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. ☮️

honestly I have no idea how to take care of this guy I just named him Angel cause I have a plant named Buffy and also Nick Angel from Hot Fuzz cause,,, that was the only thing before now I’d even heard of peace lily’s in, seems to be doing well though!! wilts instantly if he doesn’t get water for like a day but just fill his pot back up and he seems to perk up and keep growing again, wouldn’t exactly recommend for other novices like me but also? not exactly easy to kill and bring a LOT of happiness and fun to my window garden so I can’t give him lower than a 4
