Peace Lily Sunshine Dream plants are extremely adaptable because of its ability to live comfortably in a wide range of indirect light (low to bright). The more indirect light the Peace Lily Sunshine Dream gets, the more it will bloom. Avoid placing it in direct sunlight. Also, prevent your plant from getting too much shade because it can cause damage to your plants overall well-being.


Your Peace Lily Sunshine Dream needs to have consistently moist soil, but never let it sit in standing water. It will droop alarmingly when you miss a watering, but don’t worry – it will recover in a matter of hours once you water it. If this dryness causes it to lose a few lower leaves, just remove the dead leaves, and more will grow.


Peace Lily Sunshine Dream plants love loose, nutrient-rich potting soil. Use a soil medium that can retain moisture but also allows for draining excess water to avoid root rot. Most pre-mixed soils will suffice. Ensure that there is plenty of organic matter, like coco-coir, peat moss, or shredded leaves, and avoid soils that contain moisture retaining crystals. Also, the soils pH level range should be between 6.0 and 7.0, as that is what this type of plant prefers. If your soil drains too quickly, we recommend re-potting your plant into a compost-rich soil mixture, with less drainage materials. Learn how to create your own universal soil mixture for all of your indoor plants!


It is more common than not, that your Peace Lily Sunshine Dream will grow in most household temperatures ranging from 60-80℉. However this plant does not like the temperature to drop below 50℉. Keep it away from drafts and doorways during the winter months. Any exposure to severe drops in temperatures can be very damaging to your plant.


Average household humidity levels are fine for your Peace Lily Sunshine Dream, but if you are seeing brown leaf tips even though you are watering regularly, then you might have very low humidity in your home. In this case, consider adding a humidifier for a healthier, happier plant. Ideally, your plant will live its best light in humidity levels that are between 40% and 60%. This is due to those levels replicating the plant original environment.


In the growing season, fertilize your Peace Lily Sunshine Dream plant once a month with a complete liquid fertilizer, ½-strength of recommended dilution. This is especially important when the plant is blooming. Make sure you water your plant well before you apply any fertilizer to it. This is important for your plant to not get burned.
