Peace Lily enjoys medium to bright indirect light, Never allow your plant to receive direct sunlight or the foliage will burn. It can as well adapt to low light conditions, but will thrive best with bright light.
Give your plant a turn every few days to expose all sides to light for even growth from all sides.
Allow the top 50% of soil to dry between watering, maintain a regular watering schedule and keep your Peace lily moist, but not wet or soggy. This is not a drought-tolerant plant, but it is relatively forgiving if you forget to water it from time to time. Extended periods of dryness can result in brown leaf tips or edges.
To give your plant the absolute best, room-temperature rainwater and bottled spring water are your best options. Any water containing sugar or salt will hurt your plant!
Like many tropical indoor plants, Peace Lily prefers a spot with much humidity. If leaf edges begin to curl or brown, mist with filtered lukewarm water on a regular basis, or place a humidifier nearby. Your bathroom or kitchen are perfect spots for your Peace Lily because these areas tend to be more humid.

Feed with a general houseplant fertilizer - or special liquid fertilizer for flowering plants - every month during the spring and summer. No fertilizer is necessary in the winter when plant growth naturally slows.
Peace Lily is considered to be toxic to animals and humans.

With enough light and consistent moisture, Peace Lilies produce white to off-white flowers starting in the early summer, blooming throughout the year in the right conditions.
