Peace lily - green blooms

Posted by frank325 Z6 (My Page) on

Ok, so I'm a little confused. Is there a rhyme or reason to a bloom being white or green? I thought maybe they started green, then turned white, then perhaps turned green again when fading. But I have some little blooms that are green, and some are white. I had more bigger white ones that are now green, so maybe that means they are fading now ??

Hi Frank,

Peace lilies with white blooms, like mine, can turn green before fading away. Some plants will have green flowers right off the bat.
It happens from time to time, from one plant to another and nothing to be concerned about.I think the green ones are kinda nice!

I find that PL in low light will not get a white bloom. Try giving it a bit more light and see if that helps it.

RE: Peace lily - green blooms

It could be the light. But then again, mine are in full, deep shade and the blooms are all white. Although, since they're outside, they still get natural light, even though they don't get direct sunlight.

If you look at the new flowers, they are smaller and the new growth looks a bit bleached and thin, this also suggests low light.
