Peace Lily Question

Bijou09February 13, 2011

Do peace lilies propagate on their own? I know that if you want to propagate them you separate crowns from the parent plant.

The reason I ask is that I have had a peace lily appear out of nowhere in one of my spider plants! I used to have a peace lily that sat on the same plant stand next to this spider plant, but that was over a year ago now and I gave that peace lily away. Do they propagate by spores or something like that? Very curious! They never shared a pot or soil so it's kind of odd to me. I look forward to hearing what you all have to say! Thanks!

It is thought that spathiphyllum in nature are pollinated by small bees but it is possible that there are other insects that could do it and a seed you never saw developing fell into the other pot.

They do not develop spores.

These plants don't require insects for pollination to occur, and it is more likely that wind currents are responsible for much of this activity in the wild...wind and water. Human intervention can occur with a brush.

These are seed bearing plants, just like other angiosperms. Their 'flowers' are just a little bit different from the norm.
