Peace lilies are a wonderful starter plant since they are relatively easy to care for. It can grow in a variety of situations, and it is a very hardy plant that adapts well to changes. Though it is not a true lily, it still has beautiful white flowers which are a combination of the white modified leaf or hood and the spadix, the spike of small flowers. The flowers give the plant its name since the white flowers resemble white flags of surrender.


1. Where to grow them

Peace lilies are one of the most versatile plants. Even for people generally hopeless with plants, these plants are a great place to start. Though they prefer bright, indirect light, they can grow even in relatively low light levels. This makes them perfect for apartments, offices, or any other places that may not have an ideal spot for pickier house plants. They are usually best as indoor plants in most areas since they are sensitive to cold and too much direct light, but they can grow in zones 10 to 12 outside. Plant them in a shady area where the soil will stay moist. Wherever they grow, keep in mind that they are toxic if ingested, so keep them out of reach of pets and children.
