Is this why they call it Peace Lily? Look at this single pure white flower, emerging from a lush forest like a white flag of surrender.... Peace?

@lynetted I had no luck with my first one. This is my second. I've noticed it likes quite a lot of filtered sunlight (although weirdly, everywhere you read it says can survive low light). I think the biggest difference for me has been sunlight. Other than that I only water when the leaves droop - give it a nice firm watering, and make sure to pluck off any dead leaves from the base so new leaves can grow.

Siamese twin leaf is what you get when a leaf grows into the path of another more established leaf. 😂 #peacelily

Good things are coming. Sometimes it's hard to see the day to day growth, but hang in there... Spring will bloom soon. #peacelily

It's quite common for the new leaves of a peace lily to sprout out of the hollows of current leaves, but I suspect this little baby might be the beginnings of a flower! #peacelily #indoorplants

I find it quite interesting to see some new leaves growing out of mature stems. I pruned off some of the older leaves that didn't look too great, leaving the funny hollow-stems, and hello baby leaves! How resourceful. #peacelily

Everything I read tells me #peacelilies are easy indoor plants to grow. Not for me. This used to be a bushy Peace Lily with nice big leaves. I've had to cut off so many because they turned yellow and brown. I tried watering more watering less. Nothing worked. It seems to be not deteriorating too badly now and I think there are even a few new leaves.. But I'm still sceptical. #autumn #peacelily #peacelily-advice

Thanks @latebloomer for the advice. I'll definitely try relocating and the soil moisture meter sounds like a game changer. I currently don't water it that much, and it sits in the bathroom so it's rather dark and humid-ish. Maybe too dark for it I guess lol..
