Given to my family at my grandmother's funeral, survived a house fire in April and got repotted and divided then. Don't remember a flower but always assumed it was a peace lily for some reason. Now that I'm comparing it to pics online it doesn't really look like one.

Totally sure a peace lily, a dwarf type.

A really happy Peace Lily. Keep doing whatever you are doing.

Thank you! Much appreciated. While researching online I saw that florists sometimes use a hormone to force flowers and that they may never flower again... Is that true? And then some sites say if the conditions are ideal they can bloom almost continuously...
Does being divided mess with blooming?
I would love to get a flower. It would be a visit from my nana!

I don't know if that is true @Chrissyd1121. I hope not. That is a terrible trick to pull on people, for the sake of making a sale. I wonder if the retailers even know they could be selling such plants.

Hopefully, you lucked out and will have blooms soon. I wonder if there is any antidote for the hormone, lay gardeners can utilize?

It's a nice plant.
