The Q&A Archives: Care of Peace Lily

Question: My mother recently passed away and we were given some "peace lilies" to take home. My wife would like to know how to take care of them in the home (in the container). Could you give me some advice concerning this?

Answer: Peace lilies are relatively easy to care for under normal home conditions. They will tolerate a wide range of light levels but do best in moderate rather than very bright light; they should be watered regularly so that the soil stays slightly moist. You might also use a dilute water-soluble houseplant fertilizer for foliage plants according to the label instructions.
