When it comes to watering, the Peace Lily is like that friend who tells you they’re fine with whatever restaurant you pick—easygoing but has preferences.
So, the trick is to let the top inch of soil dry out before watering again. If you notice the leaves drooping a little, that’s the plant’s way of saying it could use a drink.
And when it comes to overwatering, that’s a no-go. It’s like offering someone a third slice of cake when they haven’t even finished their first. Don’t harm your plant by giving it too much of a good thing.
Feeding And Fertilizing
Contrary to what the plant food commercials might have you believe, your Peace Lily doesn’t need a five-course meal.
A simple, balanced, water-soluble fertilizer every 6 to 8 weeks during the growing season should suffice.
In winter, your Peace Lily is on break, like a teacher during summer vacation. This essentially means it doesn’t need fertilizing, so you can give it a rest.
Get Ready To Repot
Eventually, your Peace Lily might outgrow its home, just like how we once outgrew our childhood bedrooms.
But repotting isn’t as daunting as it sounds. Every 18-24 months, just move your bloom to a new home to do the trick.
Just make sure to pick a new pot that’s about 2 inches wider in diameter than the current one to give those roots room to stretch out.
