Reviving Peace Lilies. Plarenting Lessons. πŸŒ±

Hello! Hope all is well. With the new normal, it can be this, it can be that. It’s okay. What we have though is a lot of time to stay at home, to better ourselves and just to really keep thriving. It’s not easy. It’s okay. It’s okay not to be okay too. (That Korean Drama I tell you is very timely, if you have time, watch it in Netflix.) There’s just a lot going on…just to keep up with the new normal, and just to have some semblance of normalcy and as way of coping…I started a small garden. Plant parent. #plarent πŸŒ±πŸ™‹πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ Part of my time then will be spent on watering, caring, collecting and nurturing plants. So for a moment while I’m doing that, I forget about the real life dramas. For the past days, I’ve been preoccupied in trying to revive my Peace Lilies…for the second time. I was successful last time and then it happened again. At the onset, it was only one, now both of them. I won’t pretend to be an expert, I’m still learning, so, my tips here are based on what I read so far, so you avoid my misadventures in raising plants. Give yourself a break, they are not as resilient as the succulents, but some plants can be forgiving. I am so glad for it.

I have two of them. One stays in the living room and the other one is on the bedroom nightstand. I watered them the same time, but the one in the living room showed signs of drooping. After watering them, I kept them both near the window for some light (I thought that’s what it needed). It was okay, but then the next day, both of them were at it again.

You ought to know my sleeping routine is as elaborate as my skincare routine, I’ll save a post. Part of it is having plants that encourages sleep. If you found yourself here searching for Peace Lily Care Tips, I’ll just give you the key points…Low light, moderate watering, at least once a week full watering and just spray the leaves every so often, good drainage and what I realized equally as important, is consistent temperature (65 to 80 F). That’s what happened I reckon why they showed signs of drooping…one was exposed to direct A/C and direct sunlight throughout the day. And then when I thought they needed more water and more light, I placed them near the door, and they both wilted.πŸ€¦β€β™€οΈ

So after watering them for their weekly dose. I brought the other one back to my night stand and one back to the coffee table. So far, so good.

I’m so glad to having Peace lilies. Not only for their functional and aesthetics benefits but more so on what they mean to me after experiencing caring for them…they are forgiving plants…just what we need to surround ourselves with…we can all use Peace Lily. To be more kind and understanding both to ourselves and to others. We can all use a little bit of leeway. It’s okay. This too shall pass! Aja! Aja! Fighting! πŸ™ŒπŸ»
