Peace Lily Plant Care Cheat Sheet

Peace Lilies are a household plant staple that sports dark green foliage. The brighter the light, the better the chances are for beautiful white blooms.

Lighting: This a low light tolerant plant that can handle around 1-2 hours of direct light. Giving the plant more bright indirect light will encourage blooms. To maintain the plant's size, a minimum of 100 FC is required. To achieve good growth, you will want to look for 200 FC.

Watering: This plant likes to stay evenly moist between waterings. That doesn't mean to constantly drench it, but that you want to let the top 1-2" dry out of the soil before watering it again. They often show their thirst by dramatically wilting. A good drink and in a few hours it should theoretically perk right back up. This plant also appreciates high humidity and lack thereof can lead to some browning on the tips, which can easily be trimmed.


This quick cheat sheet is meant to give you tips and tricks for how to best care for your plant. All of the information above is based on my personal experience and advice with houseplants and the lighting requirements are a reference from Daryl Chang of House Plant Journal.

*FC is lighting measured in Foot Candles and requires a light meter to get an accurate reading.
