Tips on maintaining a peace lily
1. FLOWERING: Hi, I bought a beautiful peace lily around 2 months ago, and it bloomed! Most of the flowers however, are now quite dead / about to die. I've heard that you're supposed to 'cut off' dead flowers, but HOW do you do this? Do you just cut off the head? The whole stem? How far down do you cut, do you cut diagonally, etc? On that note, how would you do the same for dead leaves, which my plant is beginning to get more and more of?
2. FERTILISING: I've also heard that people have trouble getting their lillies to bloom again, after their initial flowering. When I asked my plant salesperson, he recommended plenty of sun and a capful of fertiliser every month. I'm a little worried, as a) I thought peace lillies don't like lots of sun, and b) I've seen a few threads on NOT using fertiliser on peace lillies because it burns them - could someone please advise me on this?
Sorry for all the questions! Thanks!
