Peace Lily Care

This plant likes to stay moist, but not too wet. Check the soil often in summer to see if it is starting to dry out. In winter, you can be a little more relaxed and let the top inch or so dry out before watering again.
The best light for your Peace Lily is bright, indirect sunlight. If it gets too much direct sunlight, the leaves might burn.
Your Peace Lily will do well in average room humidity, but will thrive in higher humidity levels, especially during the summer or in hot, dry conditions. You can also help remove dust from their leaves and keep brown tips at bay by misting them occasionally.
Peace Lilies prefer temperatures above 65°F, but will grow in slightly cooler temps. Keep in mind that some coolness at night and during winter (only a couple degrees cooler) will make your plant bloom plentifully!
Peace Lilies are poisonous plants that can cause mouth and stomach irritation, vomiting, and even swelling of the upper airway if ingested by pets or humans. Keep these plants away from children and pets to avoid any potential health risks.
When you repot a Peace Lily, you can divide it into multiple plants. You'll pull apart the roots into your desired clumps. Or, if a bit rootbound, you may need to cut them apart. You can then pot each one up into their own appropriately sized vessel. If you'd like to propagate without dividing your plant, you can also try a stem cutting. You'll need to take an apical stem cutting (the top of the stem where there is new growth). Try to cut a decent section with 3-4 leaves and cut just below the lowest leaf. Remove the lower leaves to ensure a clear stem for rooting.
