Over the last ten years, Spathiphyllum has enjoyed top status as one of the favourite houseplants of this generation. That being said, it is incredibly thirsty and high maintenance. That is why we strongly recommend one of our self-watering containers for extreme ease of care. No more droopy leaves, and more frequent appearances by the iconic white spathe flowers.
One of the top plants for purifying the air.
Please check out our video we made for all information on this lovely, instantly recognizable plant.
Temperature Best kept warm, to account for the water levels needed to maintain the plant which will rot if exposed to sustained cold periods.
WateringIt can grow aquatically, and requires a lot of water when in soil. It’s easy to know when to water it though, as the leaves droop when dry and will recover within a few hours of watering. It will also benefit from high humidity from a pebble tray or regular misting. You should also wipe the leaves every now and then.
Feeding Will certainly benefit from feeding throughout spring and summer. This will increase the likelihood of flowering. If you have forgotten to water it for some time and it is looking especially sad, add some food into its water to aid recovery.
Tips Keep an eye out for the drooping of leaves, as this is a sure-fire indicator of needing to water your lily.
Light Level Definitely on the dark side. Any direct sunlight will scorch the leaves and bright shade will increase the already high water needs of this plant, but increase the growth and flowering rate.
