Welcome to my page, Life With Lisa!!! I appreciate you stopping by.
Last year while experiencing my 54 Before 54, https://lifewithlisa.blog/2019/02/11/54-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:
- Represents peace & tranquility
- Leaves are big & bold
- The beautiful hoodlike sheath (the spathe), resembles a white flag of surrender
- 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!!!
