Watering your house plant
Water the peace lily adequately. The best care you can give your peace lily is to water it attentively. When (and only when) the potted soil is dry, add enough water to make it damp, but not so much as to create standing water. Too little water will cause the plant to wilt and die - in fact, if you neglect to water your plant, you should be able to see it visibly droop. However, too much water can cause a condition called root rot which can be fatal to the plant. Aim to water about once per week , when the soil is dry. It is sometimes recommended to even wait until the plant has begun to wilt ever-so-slightly before each watering.
Where can you place your house plant
Choose a spot for your peace lily. Peace lilies are native to hot, moist, shady tropical rainforests. Thus, in most temperate climates, they cannot be left outside year-round. However, inside, where it is usually relatively warm and humid compared to the outside environment, the plant can do well. The peace lily should be close to, but not directly under a window in a warm room in your house where it will benefit from indirect sunlight. North or West facing windows are best as these do not allow direct sunlight all day. Try to avoid exposing your plant to cold air or too much sun, as these can cause the plant to become unhealthy and develop brown, shriveled leaves.
Depending on your climate, you may be able to leave your peace lily outdoors for part of the year on a shady patio or similar location when the weather is warm and humid. If you happen to live in a tropical location, however, you can safely leave your plant outside year-round.
