The Q&A Archives: Watering Peace Lily

Question: How much water and sunlight should my peace lily get?

Answer: Peace Lilies are relatively easy to grow, especially indoors. They don't need direct sun, preferring bright, indirect light from a nearby window. If you are growing yours outdoors, provide plenty of shade. They will grow well where they get filtered morning sun, but shade from the hot afternoon sun. Fertilize plants about every six weeks with a liquid 20-20-20 product. To keep your peace lily looking nice, cut off at the base all spent flowers and dead or yellowing leaves. And, if you don't like the pollen that showers itself over the flower petals and leaves, cut off the stamens several days after they appear, and allow the beautiful spathes to remain on display. Most of all, enjoy!
