In the immortal words of the Spice Girls, all you need is positivity... and a spath plant (AKA peace lily). OK, we might have added this last part. To keep the good vibes coming, keep those 90's playlists populated and one of these peace lilies around to add a little green to your scene and purify the air around you.
When caring for your spath plant, the most important factors to remember are: light, foliage, soil and room temperature.
Aim to get your plant medium, indirect light. Keep it away from bright windows and corners, favoring surfaces in cooler, slightly darker areas of your home. Pro Tip: If you notice the leaves turning yellow, it's getting too much light.
Spath plants originally hail from warmer climates, so a general rule of thumb is that if you're feeling like you need a jacket, your peace lily will too. Environments cooler than 55 degrees Fahrenheit are too cold for this little guy.
Water your plant when the top inch or so of the soil feels dry to the touch. You'll want to avoid letting your peace lily sit in standing water for longer than fifteen minutes, so take care if you use a saucer or the kitchen sink to water it. It will want more or less water depending upon how warm and dry it is in the room so check the soil every day or so. Pro Tip: Spath plants give you an easy to read warning if they're thirsty-- once the foliage starts to droop you know you've gone too long between waterings.
