Peace lily

The peace lily is, without a doubt, one of the most loved houseplants ever. Its elegant and harmonious aesthetic manages to give our home walls that extra inimitable touch. Characterized by majestic green leaves and delicate white flowers , it adapts to any type of furnishing and stylistic choice. By choosing this flower we don’t risk making mistakes.

The peace lily, like all other flowers, requires simple but specific care. Sometimes it’s not enough to take care of them with water and sun: you have to resort to other solutions to make them long-lasting and lush. Now let’s see together all the basic treatments to be adopted and also a specific method that few people know to make it long-lasting. 

Peace lily: how to take care of it without making mistakes

As for the sun, the peace lily loves sunlight, but not direct sunlight. He should never be exposed to direct sunlight: it could be fatal. The best solution is to place it in a well-lit area near a window, without letting the rays hit it. Watering must be very light and delicate, never using excessive doses of water : the result could, paradoxically, be drying of the leaves. The soil must never be completely soaked in water, but only slightly damp. Waterlogging is not good for the lily. In winter the dose of water should be further reduced, in summer it should be increased.

The peace lily grows best in humid places. Too dry air could damage it. The solution is to buy a nebulizer to make the air in your home more humid. Furthermore, the perfect temperature for the lily is between 20 and 25 degrees. A trick for the yield of our lily is to clean its leaves from time to time. Now let’s see the secret method to make it last for years and years.

Make it last for many more years

If you’re fond of your peace lily, don’t worry: there’s a way  to make it much longer lasting . You won’t have to buy expensive fertilizers in hard-to-find stores: you will only need an ingredient that you already have at home. Sometimes the best solution is always at hand and it is the one we would never have thought of. The miracle ingredient is a spice that we all have at home, excellent in the preparation of desserts and exquisite dishes, cinnamon.

Cinnamon, against all expectations, is rich in nutrients that are a real panacea for the peace lily. Phosphorus, potassium, calcium, iron, magnesium, sodium and zinc : all essential ingredients necessary for the life of our flower. It will not be necessary to fill your soil with expensive chemical fertilizers.

The most correct way to use cinnamon is to dilute a large spoonful of it in about half a liter of water. Mix well: the cinnamon powder must dissolve in the water. What’s left to do is use this cinnamon water solution to water our peace lilies. In a short time they will become stronger, more beautiful and healthier.
