Expert Response

The plant in your picture is a Peace Lily, Spathiphyllum.  This plant is easy to care for indoors and helps clean the air in your home. In NASA studies, peace lilies were discovered to help control formaldehyde, benzene, and carbon monoxide from indoor air. Spathiphyllum prefers its soil moist at all times, but do not overwater. Fertilize your plant every 6 weeks with an liquid house plant fertilizer, diluted by half. Your plant can handle low to medium light conditions--never direct sun.
