PEACE LILY – Air Purifier Plant Care Tips, Propagation Repot and Mistakes



Hello Friends, Today will look into a very
beautiful ornamental indoor plant � the Peace Lily which is a NASA recommended Air
Purifying plant. Will look into the care tips, the common mistakes
we tend to do while caring peace lily and also how to propagate peace lily. Coming up.. Spath or peace lily or closet plants with
botanical name as Spathiphyllum is a beautiful indoor air purifying plant as recommended
the NASA. They are evergreen perennials with large leaves
and unique flowers which are produced in spadix. Spaedix means a spike having small flowers
on a fleshy stem.This spadix is surrounded by a spathe which is a curved white bract
or hood which covers the spadix. When it comes to indoor plants, peace lily
plants are some of the easiest to care for. But, while peace lily plant care is easy,
proper growing conditions are still important. Let�s take a look at the care of peace lilies. 1. Sunlight: Peacelily prefers medium to low
light � that�s indirect sunlight and can be kept in shady places. Again Peace lilies that are kept in more light
tend to produce more and healthy flowers, and in low light will bloom less and will
look more like a traditional foliage plant. SO keeping this mind, you can keep indoors
at a spot which receives adequate indirect bright light. 2. Watering: This point is very important for
peace lily care and the most common mistake gardeners tend to do is overwater the peace
lily. Peace lilies are far more tolerant of under-watering
than overwatering, which is one of the most common reasons for a peace lily plant to die. So what you can do is check once in three
days and dip a finger into the soil to check for moisture and if the soil is till damp,
never water it now, check again after 1 or 2 days and then water the container. 3. Also one more tip on Watering: Some people
also wait until their peace lily is starting to droop down before watering their plant. As these plants are very drought tolerant,
this method does not harm the plant and will prevent overwatering. 4. Soil: Soil at any cost has to be well draining
soil. If you bring your plant from a nursery and
you find its planted in clay rich soil, please remove the clay rich soil by soaking the root
ball in a tub of water which dissolves the clay rich soil. Then repot the plant in a larger container
in a well draining soil. Please watch my video on Universal Potting
soil from a link in description and also from the top right corner link, but please complete
this video first. 5. Well, Now the Fertilizer Requirement. You can use NPK 20 20 20 5 � 6 crystals
once a month or decomposed cowdung or horse dung powder. 6. Propagation of Peace lily: It can be grow
from seeds, and by dividing the root ball during repotting if its over grown its container. 7. One last bonus tip to keep it healthy with
proper photosynthesis, keep its leaves clean of any dust by spraying water or mopping the
leaves. So there we have it folks, That was an episode
