Peace lilly

Hi Anne,

I planted a peace lily out side for the summer. It did not die, but had many holes from slugs likely. I now want to take it in. Can I overwinter in cooler like I do other lillies or should I simply plant it and look after it better than I did this summer - darn slugs!!!


Anne's response:

The spathaphyllum or Peace Lily is usually considered a houseplant.

There are beetles, other insects and slugs that will form holes in the leaves. To keep it in the house this winter you may want to repot it to get rid of any insects in the soil. Keep it in an area with good light and a temperature of at least 55F. Water once a week or when the soil feels dry to the touch.
