The story of the Peace Lily

The official name of the Peace Lily, Spathiphyllum, is derived from the Greek words for spathe and leaf. The plant has received extra attention over the last few years through the NASA Clean Air Study.

They were researching how to purify the air in space stations and the Peace Lily turned out to purify air better than the average plant.

All plants absorb carbon dioxide and emit oxygen; NASA recommends therefore that a house of 160 square metres, should have between 15 and 18 large plants. The amount of soil is also important because micro-organisms in the soil also absorb small amounts of air pollutants.

Air Cleaning Ability - How it works

All plants enhance the air for humans and animals by pulling carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and releasing oxygen.

Peace lilies have been found to cleanse the air of many dangerous chemicals found in homes and offices, such as methyl, acetone, toluene, benzene and ammonia.

They do this by trapping the chemicals in leaf pores and breaking them down. For optimum indoor air purification, about 10 or 12 peace lilies are recommended for a typical living room.

Peace Lilies are very common houseplants because they are easy to grow. They can grow up to 16 inches, but larger ones can often reach 6 feet tall. Peace Lilies produce white flowers in the early summer and continue to bloom throughout the year.

Place the plant in an area with a temperature of around 15 °C, for six to eight weeks in a light position and it will soon flourish again. In the summer, the plant can go in the garden or on the patio, but watch out for bright sun.
