She loves humidity. If your bathroom gets lots of light, pop her in there. Or mist her every few days to keep her happy.
Most light conditions
She’s easy when it comes to light, managing in most conditions, though she’ll flower more in a brighter spot.
She’s pretty tough and will usually bounce back from a missed watering. Water her when the top inch of soil feels dry.
An easy way to water her is to put her in the shower once a week. A few minutes under lukewarm water (not hot) and she’ll be thrilled. Let the excess drain off.

About Peace lilies
As you may have guessed from their love of steamy conditions, Peace lilies are native to tropical rainforests, specifically those of South and Central America. It’s thought they were brought to Europe some time in the late 1800s and they’ve adapted well to the UK’s less than tropical conditions.
As exotic as they look, their light and water needs are modest. They cope in quite low light, though prefer indirect light, and as long as their humidity needs are met they’re generally happy and should flower throughout spring. As well as being an elegant beauty, this plant is a hardworking air-purifyer.
