One of the most beautiful looking flowers I have ever seen is a peace lily. For some reason, when people see this flower they tend to stop what they are doing and just sit and stare at it for a while. Some will even start to cross their legs and clutch at the base of the flower. I for one think that this is the greatest display of art I have ever seen.
When you place a peace lily in your house, you are going to be getting it from humid weather. If you live in a place that has high humidity, you may want to consider placing this flower closer to a window so that it can cool off a little bit. It does not do well in very low humidity or in areas where there is very little air movement. In high humidity areas, the tiny flower will start to wilt and die. If you find this to be true in your house, you may want to purchase a different species.
Many people mistakenly believe that using tap water to plant their peace lily will solve any problems with getting them to grow properly. Unfortunately, tap water is not good for these plants. The pH level of tap water is not right and the lack of light wreaks havoc on growth. The little bit of fertilizer you will use to cover the bare spots will do absolutely nothing. You also need to make sure that you water your new little plant only when it is getting plenty of light and the soil is moist.
If you have a low tolerance for high temperatures, you may not be able to get flowers from this flower either. This is due to the poor ability to handle extreme heat. If the temperature outside is very hot, you will probably have the best luck growing your little Peace Lily inside. This can be a problem if you live in an area where it snows during the winter. Your flower may not come up at all if it is covered with snow for the entire winter. This is something to keep in mind if you are trying to get flowers from this plant.
If you are growing your peace lily in the shade, you may have better luck getting them to bloom if you give them direct sunlight. This can be difficult to do though if you live in a location that has no access to direct sunlight during the day. If your peace lily has poor root health, you might not be able to get flowers out of it even if you give it lots of direct sunlight.
You should know that your flower will not grow as big if you give it a lot of water either. Although this tip number three might make it seem like you shouldn’t worry about where you place your flower, you should consider giving it a little bit of water. You just need to make sure that the water doesn’t become too runny. Your peace lily flower needs to have its own little bit of water for it to really prosper.
