Low-to-medium light plant.
This popular and versatile plant comes in many sizes from tabletop to a huge shrub. The shiny dark green leaves curve gently downward and it is the only indoor foliage plant to produce bright white “flowers” called a “spathes”. The flowers last up to a month. They're tolerant of drafts, temperature change, and are reasonably pest-resistant. Varieties include “Mauna Loa”, “Supreme”, “Petite”, “Lynise”, “Starlight” and many others.
The peace lily excels in the removal of indoor air pollutants such as acetone, benzene, formaldehyde and others. Its high transpiration rate (releasing beneficial moisture into the air) makes it a valuable plant.
