Peace lilies are a wonderful starter plant since they are relatively easy to care for. They can grow in a variety of environments and are a very hardy plant that adapts well to changes. Though it is not a true lily, it still produces beautiful white flowers that lend themselves to the plant's name since the white flowers resemble white flags of surrender.


1. Where to grow peace lilies

Peace lilies are one of the most versatile plants. Even for people who are generally hopeless with plants, these plants are a great place to start. Though they prefer bright, indirect light, peace lilies can grow even in relatively low light levels. This makes them perfect for apartments, offices, or any other places that may not be 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 can grow in warmer climates. 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.
