Peace lilies are often grown as houseplants because they require a minimal amount of care. The plant produces blooms that look similar to calla lilies. The peace lily thrives in low and moderate light and well-drained potting soil. Peace lilies can remove toxins from the air and add a decorative touch to a room. Caring for the peace lily properly will ensure that it remains healthy.

  1. 1

    Place the peace lily plant in a warm location away from direct sunlight. The plant needs indirect sunlight to grow because direct sunlight will burn the leaves.

  2. 2

    Water the peace lily with rainwater or distilled water so that the soil remains moist. Fill a spray bottle with the water and mist daily to provide humidity for the plant.

  3. 3

    Add a water-soluble fertiliser to the peace lily once a month, per label instructions.

  4. 4

    Wipe the foliage with a damp washcloth weekly. This will remove dust and debris from the foliage.

  5. 5

    Cut the flower stems back to the base of the plant when they begin to die.
