How to care for Peace Lily


Peace Lily is generally easy to care for.


Peace Lily should be watered regularly, allowing the soil to dry out between waterings.


Peace Lily loves a well-draining soil. Perlite and vermiculite help with drainage, while coco coir adds organic matter, so a good potting soil mix will have all three. You can improve store-bought soil by adding some perlite to it.


Peace Lily may not thrive and may drop leaves if it does not have enough sunlight. Place it less than 3 feet from a window to increase the potential for growth.


Peace Lily is poisonous if ingested. We suggest keeping this plant out of reach if you have children, cats, or dogs in the home.
