Peace Lily Care Guide


Open your gift and unwrap the container, then carefully follow the instructions below to grow and enjoy a healthy plant.


Peace lilies can bloom twice a year, typically spring & fall, with blooms lasting months when given the proper care.


Display peace lily where it will receive indirect filtered light, not direct sunlight. If leaves get pale and begin to curl, it is a sign the plant is receiving too much direct light. Temperatures between 65° and 80°F (not staying below 55°F) are ideal. Keep away from cold drafts and frost.


Water only when the soil is dry, to a minimum of 1 inch below the surface, with filtered/unchlorinated water or water that has been allowed to sit for 24 hours. Be careful not to over water, but do not allow the soil to dry out completely. Peace lilies prefer humid environments and during the summer months like to be misted frequently with non-chlorinated or distilled water.

Apply a complete liquid fertilizer weekly or bi-weekly during the growing season, typically March through September. Do not fertilize in winter months.

Jackson & Perkins offers a selection of fertilizer & plant care products. We suggest using AlgoPlus fertilizer for the general health and maintenance of your plant.


Wipe leaves with a damp rag to remove dust.


When your plant has outgrown its current pot, especially if roots are growing out of the drainage holes, transplant in early spring, if possible. With each repotting, increase the pot diameter 1 to 2 inches in size and use fresh, high-quality potting soil. Make sure your new pot has ample drainage holes so the soil can drain properly.

IMPORTANT: Ornamental plant material should not be eaten. Keep away from pets and children.
