Pothos and Peace

House plants can serve many purposes. Some people use them to add color or create a mood in a room. And there is evidence that they can also improve air quality and help reduce stress.

Perhaps you are thinking about adding a house plant to your home or office. Two suggestions from Flowerland are Pothos and the Peace Lily.

Pothos (Epipremnym aureum) is a low growing, vining plant that is fairly easy to grow and maintain. It grows to about 18 inches tall with vines that can reach about 10 feet in length. Pothos does fine in low light and can tolerate watering variations. Allow about 3/4 of the soil to dry between waterings and fertilize monthly with a balanced fertilizer (20-20-20) from April through October.

The Pothos Golden is a durable plant for the novice or experienced indoor gardener.

The Peace Lily or Spathiphyllum is very recognizable with its dark green leaves and hood-shaped white blooms. Peace Lilies can grow 1 1/2 to 4 feet tall. The leaves can grow to be more than a foot long and are uniform and full. They can tolerate low to medium light and prefer moist soil. Fertilize with a balanced fertilizer (20-20-20) monthly from April to October.
