22” Spathyphyllum Sensation
Originally from the jungles of Columbia, Spathiphyllum or gracefully called Peace Lily is a tropical plant that is a must-have in modern Indian homes. Here are plants, that with little care add a touch of nature even as they help remove toxins and indoor air pollutants. Spathiphyllum are great for beginners as they are for collectors who are now on the look out for newer, more sought-after hybrids of this plant.
Adopting and caring for a Spathyphyllum
Adopting: It’s easy to spot an uncared for Peace Lily. Overcrowded pots, burnt or brown leaves. Mottling of the spadix. The best Spathiphyllum specimens have lush, deep green leaves, a few fresh white flowers all in a pot that is not overgrown or too thin. While these plants are free from most insect-borne diseases, look out for any issues with their leaves, especially on the undersides.
Locating: Spathiphyllum have evolved in the undergrowth of tropical forests so they need shaded or filtered light. Set the plant up in a bright spot in your home or office. Direct sun will damage the plant, so give them indirect light as best as you can. They can also be grown under artificial fluorescent lights like the ones in the office
Potting: A Spathiphyllum does not need any special type of potting soil. Being a native of the tropics, they do well in any well-drained potting soil rich with organic material. Use a mix of coco-peat, compost, sand in 20:60:20 ratio
Watering: Overwatering is the chief cause of disease or death of any plant. While they need regular watering, do ensure that you don’t overwater them. To get the plant to show off their glossy, green leaves it is best to wipe clean their leaves with a moist tissue or cloth once every month. In drier months, misting them a few times a week could help improve humidity around the plant and helping them flourish.
Fertilising: Feeding your Spathyllium a few times a year is a good way to get them to bloom regularly. So give them some organic liquid fertiliser once or twice a year. Dilute it in water as described on the pack and add a little to each pot as part of your watering routine. If you are using a chemical fertiliser do ensure that you keep it away from the plant and its base.
A Peace Lily, with its unique character, does add an air of calm and Zen to any indoor or outdoor setting. These plants are easy to care for and flower freely if they have been provided with a good potting substrate. If your plant is set in an indoor location with very little light, it’s best to rotate the plant to a spot with better light, like a window, or a balcony. Do ensure that these locations do not bring harsh, direct light onto the plants
