information: "Peace Lilies" are probably the
most popular plant in the USA. They are widely used to make Betta
bowls. There are numerous varieties available from small leaved
plants to very broad leaved plants, in every pot size imaginable.
They are quite easy to grow. In a well lit, warm or dry environment...
the can consume lots of water. Check for water 2 - 3 times per
week until you are accustomed to your plants requirements. If your
plant becomes severely wilted... place it in a bath tub or large
sink and run plenty of water thru the soil to re-moisten the root
ball. Repeated wilting will cause leaf spotting and brown leaf
Feed bi-monthly with Peter's Plant food. Make sure the soil
is moist before feeding. New plants have been treated to flower,
if your plant stops flowering, just be patient... it will bloom
again. Propagation is difficult.
