SPATHIPHYLLUM

     Spathiphyllum, a member of the Araceae family, is commonly called the Peace Lily, White Flag, or Snow Flower.  One of NASA's top 10 "clean air plants" that fights the "sick building syndrome", the Spath has an exotic flower with lush tropical foliage.  The Spath is one of the most popular indoor low light plants as it even flowers under low light situations.  It blooms naturally between March to September but with miracle of modern science some of the varieties can be made to bloom all year.  The plant likes to have moist soil and when you forget to water it it will almost lay down on the top of the pot as a message that it need water.  There are some varieties that will grow under water in fish tanks.  Recently there has been a rush for 4" Spath to put in a clear vase with all the dirt taken off the roots.  Then you add a fish and you have a fish and flower relationship that actually works.  However most people do feed the fish.
