How do you take care of a Spathiphyllum Peace lily?
- Keep the soil moist, but do not overwater.
- Peace lilies are sensitive to chemicals commonly found in tap water, such as fluoride, which may cause brown leaf tips.
- Peace lilies enjoy high humidity.
- Peace lilies are not heavy feeders, so fertilize only occasionally.
Similarly, how often should you water a peace lily?
One of the great advantages in caring for the peace lily is the fact that it sags a bit when it needs water, essentially telling you when it's thirsty. In general, water at least once a week and keep the soil moist. Throughout the summer growing season, spritz the leaves with soft or distilled water.
Also Know, are coffee grounds good for peace lilies? Just save a little of your leftover coffee grounds and sprinkle them onto the soil, then water your plant as normal. This is a great way to make those flowering plants that refuse to bloom start blooming again as well. Geraniums in particular just love coffee, and so do Peace Lily plants!
People also ask, when should I cut back my peace lily?
Once a stalk has made one flower, it won't make any more – after the flower fades, the stalk will eventually brown and die as well. Peace lily pruning should be done at the base of the plant. Cut the stalk off as close to the bottom as you can. This will make room for new stalks to emerge.
How do I know if my peace lily is overwatered?
Learn to take it back a few notches with these clues.
- Wet and Wilting. It looks wilted, but the soil is wet.
- Brown Leaves. If the leaves turn brown and wilt, there is the possibility that you have been overwatering.
- Edema. The third sign that your plant has been overwatered is edema.
- Yellow Falling Leaves.
