help identify my little peace lily?

squidy(8a)June 27, 2011

I didn't even realize this thing was a peace lily when I bought it. I never liked them much, but this one is so tiny and crinkly. It's an Exotic Angel plant and the tag just says Spathiphyllum. It's in a 4-inch pot.

Here are some pics, sorry they're not very good:

and for size ref..:

Does it have a name?

Hey Squidy,

Interesting look those ruffled edges, I've not seen that one before.

I collect Hoyas, sometimes from Exotic Angel. Have you visited their site? There's likely a name for that plant on their site, mind you it might be a wrong name, which they do often enough, but you might try looking there.

Gosh, it's amazing how large the plant looks in the pictures.

Very nice and healthy. I have not seen one of these before but even though I'm not that great a fan of peacelilies, I would probably buy if I saw it in the store.

I agree with Pirate..You just may find its name on the EA website.

I checked EA site, but Squidy's plant is not listed under Spath.
It reminds me of a green/non variegated, Philodendron 'ring of fire.' Leaves and flowers are shaped alike.

Squidy, it's a most remarkable plant. Where did you find it? Toni

Found it at Home Depot. :D
I just moved, and the one that's near me now has a ZILLION plants. It was the only one of its kind that I saw there.

Now I'm glad I picked it up. When I'm there I never know what to get because I don't know what might be hard to find again..

Sounds like you have one of the great HD's. They're certainly not all alike.

I've found out the hard way that once I see a plant that I like, to go ahead and get it because chances are the next day it won't be there. LOL!

EA usually sneaks plants in that no one is aware they're selling but I enjoy that.

'Ditto' Susan's post. Most of the time, both nearby HD's sell the same, common plants, but if you happen to be there the right time, you could get lucky. :)
And you surely did.
I feel like running to HD to see if your plant is available. lol. It's lovely, Squidy.

If yours is a Spath, I'd go for it. I'm not a Spath fan..have 3..two variegated, one green and not doing well because of my selfish neglect..gets watered, whenever, needs repotting, etc.

take care of that cutie..Toni
