Originally from Panama and Costa Rica, the peace lily is a nearly stem less plant with glossy dark green leaves, up to 14×4 in. (36 x 10 cm), on stalks up to 8 in. (20 cm) long, which grow directly from the rhizome.
The striking arum-like flowers are produced on stalks of up to 1 ft. (30 cm) long, and consist of a concave, oval spathe, which starts off white and gradually changes to green, sin rounding a white, scented spadix.
Size: Spread 3 ft. (90 cm).
Light: Indirect sunlight.
Temperature: Normal room.
Moisture: Keep moist at all times.
Feeding: Apply standard liquid fertilizer every two weeks from spring through to fall.
Propagation: Divide in spring.
Special needs: Avoid dry air at all times by placing the pot on a tray of moist pebbles. In warm conditions the plant will not have a definite rest period, so continue watering and fertilizing at a reduced level.
