Not flowering. I’ve heard new advice 🤓 Apparently they prefer to be kept tight in their pot almost fit to burst! And if you keep it dry to the point of droopy leaves, and then give it a water it will get a sudden flower spurt. I’ll give it a go🤞 #advice

That's good to know. Mine is crammed into it's pot and I always forget to water it - And yet it flowers all year round.

Really Charlotte! That’s great to know. Mine is crammed in so I’m half way there. I’ll just stop watering it regularly now. @charlotte

No flowers yet but I'll try letting it dry out like you advise and see if that works!

That’s usually what happens to mine. Although it’s not through intention but instead a bit of neglect on my part 😂

😂 @richard.spicer.7906 I feel bad to see it’s leaves droopy but I’ll turn a blind eye. Does yours flower?

It does usually yes, but it comes in phases. Haven’t had any for a few weeks now but I noticed at the weekend how much new foliage growth it has put on recently.

Hi Denise, sorry for late reply! My plant is the result of sticking 4 sick baby plants in 1 pot. Took ages to recover and not a single flower. Thanks for the advice! Mines been living part time in the bathroom for extra humidity ☺

By the way mine seems to have much lighter green leaves than yours, perhaps mine still isnt at its happiest

Supposed to keep these out of direct sunlight, but this seems to be where it thrives! Does anyone know how often it should flower? #houseplant #peacelily

Your plant is bigger than ours but we found the same thing- it seems to like more sunlight. Our plant flowers once a year for several weeks but our friend's plant flowers twice a year!

Hmmm I’ve read they don’t like tap water, but that might just be here in the UK. I’m going to give it bottled water and see if has a sudden bloom😊

They like a very bright spot the isnt in direct sunlight. I mist mine alot along with my boston fern as like it humid. Yours is big, perhaps a bigger pot for it?

Nick I missed your reply! You’re right it could do with a bigger pot🙈 How often does yours flower? I’ve since moved it away from the window as it seemed to be getting scorched ends on its leaves, so it’s now in its 3rd spot @broughgardens @gjones
