Room flower Spathiphyllum (female happiness), care at home.

This is a plant with elongated leaves on thin legs of green or bright green color, which pleases not only with its greenery, but also with white beautiful flowers. The plant is universally suitable for growing at home and in the office, but in order for it to be happy with its flowering, you need to properly care for it.

Spathiphyllum at home

Spathiphyllum is considered a marsh plant and does not like too bright light. Moreover, when exposed to direct sunlight, it not only dries the tips of the leaves, but also instantly dries the ground. Therefore, the optimal conditions for its maintenance are not too high temperatures and the absence of a bright sun. The flower can be successfully located not only on the window sill, but also on the bedside table, the only condition is that he still has contact with the sun. The ideal window for this flower is facing south-west or southeast. If the flower has enough light, then the foliage will have a juicy green shade. With his deficiency, she begins to turn pale.


Replanting the plant too often is not required, as well as choosing a too large pot. In principle, to update the soil, it is enough to look for a pot 1-1.5 cm in diameter wider than the previous one a year, in the spring. The easiest way to get ready-made soil, but much more important is not to forget about drainage. Since the flower is very fond of water, then you need as much drainage as it will help to avoid its stagnation. A few centimeters of expanded clay poured on the bottom of the pot will eliminate this problem.

Top dressing

In general, the flower is fed at least once a month. During the flowering period, this is done more often, once every 10 days or every two weeks. Any mineral complexes or a top dressing for flowering plants are used for top dressing.

Home care

Despite all the seeming difficulties, there are no particular problems with the care of the spathiphyllum. It is only necessary to regularly water and spray it. The flower loves moisture and makes it so pronounced that it is simply impossible to confuse the moment when it begins to need watering. If the leaves of the spathiphyllum sank abruptly, as if wilted, it means that it needs water. Water the flower often enough. In the summer it can be even every other day, and in the winter a couple of times a week. It is not forbidden to water the flower both from above and through the pallet, but the latter must be deep enough to deliver the right amount of liquid to the roots. Water for watering the plant must be soft, or separated, or filtered.

Consequences of mistakes in home care

If the indoor flower spathiphyllum feels good, it regularly throws out new leaves, and twice a year it blooms with white flowers, in appearance resembling half-closed small cups. When this does not happen, you need to look for the reasons why the flower does not drive out the arrows. It is possible that the absence of light, feeding, or too large a pot is to blame. In this case, all the forces will go to the development of the root system, and not to bloom.

Care at home for the leaves. But you need to spray the leaves regularly. In the conditions of winter heating or summer heat, it is advisable to do this as the droplets on the leaves dry, but this is due to the power of a rare florist. So, in order to maintain sufficient humidity, it remains only to place open vessels with water next to the flower, and to spray it at least twice a day.

How to diagnose spathiphyllum leaves?

Spathiphyllum is one of the plants, the state of which can be determined with confidence by its appearance. Characteristic changes in the state of petioles and leaves will tell you what is wrong with your magnificent flower.
