The Spathiphyllum was originally a low growth plant in tropical rainforests. Spathiphyllum is therefore a tropical, water loving plant, well adapted to the shadows and in need of plenty of water.

For optimum enjoyment of your Cupido™ Spathiphyllum we would like to give you the following tips:

  • Place the Spathiphyllum in room temperature (not below 15°C, and not above 25°C)
  • Put the plants in (half) shadow, definitely not in full sunshine.
  • Water the Spathiphyllum preferably twice a week, do not let the soil dry out.
  • Regular spraying of the leaves promotes growth. High atmospheric humidity discourages brown leave edges. (This is especially important in winter when the heating is turned on).
  • Fertilise the plants once every 2 weeks for improved growth and once a month during the winter.
  • Remove dead flowers.
  • Do not discard dead plants! With proper care the plant will grow new flowers after 4-12 months.
  • The plant is like airy soil (anthurium soil). Repotting is best done in spring.
  • Spathiphyllum is intended for decorative purposes, not for consumption.

Spathiphyllum outside

After middle of May the Spathiphyllum can go outside. We recommend protecting the plants at night during the first week or putting them inside.

Place the Spathiphyllum away from full sunshine, in a place with as little wind as possible to prevent dehydration.
