Basics for Thriving Peace Lilies:
Light & Shade: Though adaptable, regulating its light can prevent leaf drying and boost its growth. It blooms most profusely between May and October.
Annual Repotting: Refresh its environment by repotting each spring. For mature lilies, just replace the top 4 cm layer of soil. Also, consider adding some drainage material at the pot’s base to prevent waterlogging.
Watch its Leaves: If the peace lily starts to wilt, it’s time for a good watering. If neglected for too long, immerse the pot in a tray filled with water to rejuvenate it. Regularly remove dead leaves to maintain its health.
Keep the Foliage Moist: A dry peace lily might attract pests. Regularly mist it and remove dust to maintain humidity.
Watering Schedule: In the summer, water it daily, while in winter, once a week is sufficient. For flourishing blooms and enhanced immunity, mix gelatin in its watering routine.
The Gelatin Trick for Blooming Peace Lilies:
Gelatin, rich in nitrogen, can serve as a homemade fertilizer, bolstering the peace lily’s immunity and growth. Here’s a simple gelatin mixture for your plant:
Warm a glass of water (avoid boiling) and mix in a spoonful of gelatin.
Once cooled, dilute with three glasses of tap water.
Use this solution to water the plant once monthly, particularly in the warmer months. Within days, your peace lily should respond with vibrant blooms.
