hi,I brought this plant down from another property we had up north (gympie), and transplanted it here in my garden at Rothwell, I thought it wasn't growing too well, so transplanted it again in another area, it loves the position it's now in, and is flowering, so i can safely say flowering in October, here in Queensland Australia, it is now growing so profusely, that i will have to start thinking of splitting it up, any thoughts???? it produced 1 flower, and there is another 4 ready to open, this doesn't seem to be happening, as the first flower was over a week ago, hope this will help others, and if i successfully manage to split the plant up, i will let you know,, thanks for this site

Planted about 3 mos. ago. They grow great here outside in St. Petersburg, FL. I have mine in dappled sun/shade ~ mainly shade. I keep them watered frequently and are/have blooming beyond belief (constantly)! I am growing the variated variety, with the white touched leaves. I expect them to grow between 2-4 feet, some of them are already there. I did not know they are poisonous, glad they're out front. Enjoy this plant, it's quite beautiful!

In my opinion, this is the best Peace Lily. It has large leaves that make the foliage alone something remarkable in a shaded garden. The flowers are white, larger than other Peace Lilies, with a heavenly smell that will persist for a few days (the flowers are good to cut, but if you are cultivating it as a home plant, it isnīt necessary). It tends to send out new flowers all the time during spring/summer, so you may have this perfume around for a very long time. When fertilized, the bract turns green, and if you keep it on the plant, it may cause a delay on the production of new flowers.
I have this Peace Lily for several years, and, observing how it reacted to all the situations, I learned a few things about this. It will not tolerate direct sun light, the leaves burn, and the younger leaves become smaller. It will not tolerate air currents, it dries up the plant very quickly, and increasing watering will not help - it will most likely cause root rot instead. It will not tolerate very high temperatures, because it dries up too quickly, but will not tolerate much cold, because it may burn the tender new leaves. It likes warm and shaded places, with some humidity, and organic soil that must be kept always moist. Can be kept in a large vase as a house plant. Can be easily propagated by rhyzome division.
This plant has been said to grow in the following regions:
