Peace Lily

Spathiphyllum

 
 

Congratulations for purchasing a CUP O FLORA. Let's set you up for success.

Peace lilies are one of our most popular plants. They are perfect for offices or areas where there is not a lot of natural light. They are resilient and keep looking great even in sub-optimal conditions.

Care instructions

Light: low to lots of natural light but no direct sun.

Watering: fill the outer pot with approximately 2 cm of water and refill when the water runs out. Don't worry if you forget to refill for a few days away as the plant enjoys a wet-dry cycle.

What to look out for: The plant will reward you with a beautiful white flower if given enough light and care. After a while, the plant may outgrow the pot and can have little pups popping beside the main plant, which is the plant's way to say it needs to be re-potted.

Re-potting: Buy a new pot from your nearest retailer or order a pot here (consider a larger vessel to give the plant room to grow).

Insert the wick into the new pot and fill a third of the insert with soil. 

Extract the overgrown plant with the soil and use your fingers to split the main plant from the pups.Rinse the old insert and position the pups.

Cover the roots with more soil. Compact the soil and eliminate air pockets by gently tapping the insert on the table (use a cloth to ensure the glass is not damaged). Repeat the same method for the main plant.

Sad plant indicators

Yellow leaves: The plant has overgrown the pot. You may also note the roots starting to circle around the bottom of the insert. See re-potting instructions above.

Brown leaves: Make sure you follow the watering regime above. Some leaves will dry naturally and can be cut using a pair of scissors.
