Ask the Expert: Peace Lily – Lighting shade or brighter light? I’ve read conflicting care info specifically light requirements for the peace lily. One plant book says bright indirect light, another source says low light. Mine currently is receiving low light- does it need more? No signs of yellow leaves. SLS
The great thing about Spathiphyllum (Peace Lily) is that it can take both bright indirect light and low light levels. I have noticed that in low light levels it tends to stretch and may not be a full as it is in bright indirect light. The important question for you is “Does my plant look healthy and green?”. If your answer is yes then your lighting is fine. If it doesn’t – rule out pests, fertilizer and watering problems before you change the light exposure.
