What Houzz contributors are saying:
CleaningThe big wide leaves on peace lilies tend to be a dust magnet. Be sure to either wash the leaves or wipe them down with a damp cloth at least once a year. This will help it process sunlight better. Washing the plant can be done by either putting it in the bathroom and giving it a short shower or by placing it in a sink and letting the tap run over the leaves.
Pot type: The ideal pot would be about 25 centimetres in diameter, sufficient to bear the load of a fully grown peace lily plant. It must have drain holes to prevent rotting of the roots. You can also put the pot inside a larger decorative container to balance the volume of the growing foliage. What it needs: This plant does well in shady and no-sunlight areas. It is enough to water it every two to three days in hotter seasons and four to five days in winter. Tip: Trim only the dead or brown leaves and stems. The peace lily plant holds an irritant sap; make sure your pet is trained to not chew on the flowers. You can also make your own DIY fertiliser out of vegetable and fruit peels by blending them into a paste. Add this paste to the soil every two to three months.
