Peace lilies and why they're still a popular house plant

Peace lilies are a popular houseplant for many reasons. They're easy to care for, attractive, and air-purifying and to this day fall into the top 5 plants that people are buying. Here's why:

Easy to care for

Peace lilies are very low-maintenance plants. They don't need a lot of sunlight, water, or fertiliser. They're also relatively resistant to pests and diseases. This makes them a great choice for people who are new to gardening or who don't have a lot of time to devote to plant care.


Peace lilies are also very attractive plants. They have glossy, dark green leaves and white flowers. They can be grown in a variety of containers and can be used to add a touch of elegance to any room and the flowers themselves will come back time after time.


Peace lilies are known for their ability to purify the air and who doesn't want cleaner air?

Symbolic meaning

Peace lilies are also associated with peace and tranquility. This makes them a popular choice for offices, homes, and other places where people want to create a relaxing and inviting atmosphere.

If you're looking for a beautiful, easy-to-care-for, and air-purifying houseplant, a peace lily is a great choice.

Here are some additional tips for caring for your peace lily:

  • Water your peace lily when the top inch of soil is dry.
