What could be more appropriate in these troubled times than something to represent Peace. This is a new houseplant that I have bought, a Peace Lily.
Peace Lily Plant
My Peace Lily has really given my room a lovely lush look and they are well known for purifying the air. They are also quite easy to look after, they only need watering when the soil is dry or leaves wilting. So, great for me, I’m terrible at keeping plants alive.
I do have another plant that I’ve had for two years so I believe I am now responsible enough to look after another. My Chamaedorea Elegans has thrived from a tiny plant and I’ve had to repot it, but it seems it needs a little more light so I’ve moved it to another spot and the Peace Lily has taken it’s place.
The Peace Lily has white leaves which hide it’s tiny flowers. I thought the white leaves were the flowers but a little help from Google has taught me otherwise.
I also know that lilies can be dangerous for cats but with my new plant the cats would have to get near it, and I’ve put it well out of their reach.
I may even add more plants to my home. I’d love one on a shelf in my hallway, but the shelf hasn’t been erected yet (I’ve only been waiting two years) so we’ll see how that goes.
Any plant enthusiasts out there that would know what sort of plant would thrive in a hallway with minimum natural light? (I’m not a fan of Cactus and would like something welcoming.)
