Spathiphyllum. A compact plant with leaves about two feet (60cm) tall and inflorescences about a foot (30cm) taller. The spathe and spadix are about six inches (15cm) long and pure white. Does best in full sunlight coming from the North/East/West. Drench the soil and let it become moderately dry between waterings. If you use rainwater, be careful as it could be acidic. Use warm water. Mist frequently with warm water (lime free to avoid leaf staining) and try to avoid drafts as they may damage the plant. Place pebbles or gravel in the drainage dish to hold water and increase the humidity, make sure the pot is sitting on the gravel and not in the water. An excellent air purifier. Some species removes formaldehyde, benzene, toulene. ethyl and methyl alcohol, acetone, xylene, ammonia, trichlorothylene and ethyl acetate from the surrounding atmosphere.
