Why wont my peace lily flower again? I have had this one for 3 or 4 years, the leaves grow occasionally and it looks healthy. Newer plants that I have bought don't flower either. Thanks Lisa



Peace lillies need very good light to flower (not direct sun though). They also love humidity. They tolerate shade very well but generally won't flower in shade.

Mine is on a north windowsill and gets good light but no sun. It is potbound, only gets watered and fed when I remember or when it looks a bit sad, and it grows very robustly and flowers regularly. Perhaps you are killing it with kindness? (Or perhaps I should be run in for cruelty...)The pot sits in a larger one which will trap any water that runs through and increase the humidity around the plant while its there, but not sure that would be enough to count as a humid atmosphere.
