First is a strong contender as a favourite houseplant. They bring a pure and calming feel to the atmosphere with the white bracts that contrast with the dark green foliage. These bracts can be mistaken for flowers, but the flowers are the spadix, which is the small spike of flowers that has a yellowish tinge to it.
Peace lilies can bloom twice a year if they’re healthy. One of these times is in spring, and the other in autumn. The blooms can stick around for a month or two each time, meaning you’ll have white bracts for many months of the year. The flowers will begin to turn brown, when they can be deadheaded.
To increase the likelihood of blooms, ensure the plant is in a spot with access to bright but indirect sunlight for at least a few hours each day.
To flower, they aren’t overly hungry plants, so don’t need feeding very regularly. However, to encourage blooms in spring, feed with a balanced liquid houseplant fertiliser from late winter once every 6 weeks.
Another thing to bear in mind to keep the plant healthy overall is that they are tropical plants, so appreciate high humidity. Increase the humidity by regularly misting the plant, or place the pot on a tray of gravel and water.
