The Deets on Peace Lilies

Main Points:

  • Peace lilies are favored for their beautiful, glossy green leaves and ethereal white spathes (that’s flower-speak for you non-horticulturists).
  • Despite it’s misleading name, the peace lily isn’t a real lily. It’s just a master of disguise.
  • They are symbols of peace, making them the perfect centerpiece for when you want to meditate or persuade your roommate to finally do their dishes.
  • Perfect for those who lack the so-called “green thumb”, they’re super low maintenance and can thrive even in low-light conditions. They’re practically begging to be your next home decor purchase.
  • They are environmental warriors, helping to clean the air inside your home. An indoor plant that’s also a live-in maid? Sign us up!

Hot Take

Despite what its name would have you believe, the peace lily is all about drama. Dressed in stunning green and white, it slyly pulls off the lily look without actually being one – sneaky, huh? This houseplant is more than just a pretty face, though. It’s perfect for those attempting – and failing – to achieve botanic wizardry, as it can tolerate low light levels and neglect. Let’s be real – forgetting to water a plant is basically a right of passage. More than just being easy to care for, peace lilies are also great for keeping the air in your home fresh and clean. They’re the green, leafy superheroes we need but don’t deserve. So, if you’re looking for a low-key plant that silently cleans your air while posing as a lily, we’ve got two words for you: Peace. Lily.
