The Peace Lily is a staple in the houseplant world. Its broad, deep green leaves bring a lush tropical vibe reminiscent of the jungles it comes from. The creamy white blooms are called spathes, which house tiny flowers. The rich white color of the spathes has come to signify peace, prosperity, and remembrance.
The Peace Lily is native to the dense rainforests of Venezuela and Colombia. It made its way to Europe in the 1860s and quickly gained traction for its beautiful yet forgiving nature. The plant will wilt dramatically if it gets too dry, but a thorough watering should quickly fix this. Peace lilies can adapt to low light, but provide bright indirect light to encourage the sought-after white blooms, or spathes.Additional Resources:
