General Information

The genus Spathiphyllum is found on the forest floor in the rain forests of tropical America. This explains its ability to cope with poor lighting indoors.
Flowers first appear when the plant is mature enough and consist of a large white spathe with a white or pale yellow spadix. Sometimes the spathes are green, an indication that they are modified leaves.
The Peace Lily's shiny leaves with their prominent fish-bone pattern are quite attractive. Flowering will be more sparse in poor lighting, but it will still flower even in a north-facing window.
Although Peace Lilies are ideal for dark corners, they will grow well in brighter light as long as they are not subjected to hot direct sun.
