Environment
Place peace lilies in a location where they get filtered light, such as a bright window. North or West facing windows are best as these do not allow direct sunlight all day. In too little light, the plants won t bloom properly. In harsh sunlight, they become bleached or dry.

Keep evenly moist. Be sure to use a container with a drainage hole and never allow the plant to stand in water.

Mist the leaves several times a week with a spray bottle. Mist your plant more frequently in the summer growing season – the more water you can supply the blooms, the healthier it will be.

Growth may cease completely below 70 F, but will resume when warmer weather returns.

Any good potting mix that drains well will be ideal for the plant.

During growing, fertilizer with slow-release fertilizer or use a 20-20-20 liquid fertilizer at half-strength every month. Iron deficiency can result in yellowing leaves between the veins treat with an iron drench.
