The Peace Lily

Welcome to my page, Life With Lisa!!! I appreciate you stopping by.

Last year while experiencing my 54 Before 54, one of my items was to get a household plant for my home office. EVERYTHING on my list had meaning to it, including the plant. I chose the Spathiphyllum, commonly known as the Peace Lily, and here’s why.

I first started by researching household plants that were easy to take care of. Let’s be honest, I do NOT have a green thumb!!! Peace lily fell in the category of “hard to kill!”. In further researching the peace lily, I discovered the following:

  • Low-maintenance
  • Represents peace & tranquility
  • Leaves are big & bold
  • The beautiful hoodlike sheath (the spathe), resembles a white flag of surrender
  • Resilient
  • Forgiving nature
  • Vibrant & graceful
  • Purifies the air we breathe
  • Given as an expression of sympathy & comfort
  • Thrives indoors, low light conditions

Aren’t these beautiful characteristics of such a simple, beautiful plant?

Can you relate to my plant that is screaming “I’M THIRSTY!!!”

Once properly hydrated, it revives beautifully.

These pictures are symbolic to the way I feel when I do not drink enough water. I feel like I’m in a slump, lacking energy. Magically when I drink my water, I bounce back feeling as resilient as the peace lily!!!

Beware!!! As lovely as this is, it is poisonous to cats & dogs.

Do you have a favorite household plant? I’d love to hear about it!!!

Imagine with all your mind ~ Believe with all your heart ~ Achieve with all your might

  1. that’s lovely, lisa. i am horrible with houseplants, but this year, i’m doing a bit better, it’s only taken me 60+ years to begin to get the hang of it and not kill everything. )

  2. I have one as well and they are magnificent! They are perfect since they thrive on indirect light. I’m in an apartment now so my outdoor gardening days are over. Having indoor flowers is necessary. My other favorite is an “Easter” cactus. The brilliant pink flowers are stunning, but they only visit once per year (or longer if I move it).
