The Spathiphyllum likes a moderately light or shady location, and certainly not from direct sunlight. The ideal temperature is between 15 and 23 C °.
The pot ball must always be moist. Watering about once a week is usually sufficient. The plant may stand in a layer of water with its feet. For healthy Spathiphyllum it is recommended to add some plant food to the irrigation water once a month.
The Spathiphyllum blooms for about four to ten weeks and then needs a few weeks of rest to develop new flower buds. It is wise to cut away the old (green) flower stalk completely after flowering. The Spathiphyllum always develops new shoots, where after about twelve weeks, flowers come out. To promote flowering, it may be good to temporarily keep the plant slightly drier and to place it in a slightly colder place.
Air purifying effect; How do Spathiphyllum purify the air?
Spathiphyllum purify the air by absorbing various harmful substances from the air through the stomata in the leaf during their natural respiration. These substances are then stored and broken down in the plant or the root. CO2 is also converted into oxygen during the day and the plants bring water vapor into the air, which improves the air humidity.
How much Spathiphyllum should I put in a room so that it is optimally healthy / the air is purified?
Researchers from NASA, among others, recommend placing 15-18 plants per 180m3 for a good contribution to a healthier indoor climate. Studies from NASA and TNO, for example, show that plants such as Spathiphyllum in the home and workplace not only have an air purifying effect, but also have a positive influence on the psychology of people.
Can I also place Spathiphyllum outside?
Spathiphyllum are real houseplants. Originally the plants come from Tropical Asia and South America and can not withstand temperatures below 15 ° C and strong winds. We therefore recommend to enjoy your Spathiphyllum inside.
How long will the Spathiphyllum remain stable?
If the Spathiphyllum are in the right location and are well-groomed, they can be in your home or office for years as an air-purifying eye-catcher.
Are the Spathiphyllum toxic to humans and animals?
Spathiphyllum are intended for decoration and not for consumption. Although the different plants are produced in the most environmentally friendly way possible, we recommend that you always consult a doctor if they are used internally.
My Spathiphyllum separates drops from the tips of the leaves. What can I do about this and is this toxic?
Spathiphyllum evaporate the water that they absorb with their roots and thereby improve the humidity. This evaporation can be so high that drops are formed on the leaves. You may be able to put the plant in a somewhat cooler place.
The Spathiphyllum is known for its air purifying effect.
I ordered a number of plants which took about a week to arrive. The first thing that struck me was how well they were packaged, the plants are fastened securely with tape and elastic. Some smaller ones had come loose and were upside down in the box which led to some damage, but the 6 larger plants are all in perfect condition and excellent quality. Considering the delivery was €15 and I ordered 2 large boxes, I think it was excellent value. A stand out was the Philodendron royal queen, which is stunning. I’ll definitely be ordering from this site again.
