Can you plant a Peace Lily outdoors in Florida?
We love Peace lily plants and we have always kept several in our home, wherever we have lived, over the years. We recently moved to Florida, and were just wondering if they will thrive and bloom if planted outdoors, here.
The reason we ask is that one of the secrets of keeping a Peace Lily blooming is to let it become "root bound" in a pot. When you do this, you will get almost perpetual blooms on your Peace Lily.
Since Florida has good humidity, and this is a tropical rain forest plant, I would say yes. It would need shade w/ filtered light, well composted soil, regular water, and fertilizer. Water deeply and adjust frequency to when the top 2-3 in. are dry. Fertilze with a well balanced fertlizer like Osmocote 14-14-14 which will feed for 4 mos. I do NOT recommend Miracle Gro for lasting health. Keep an eye out for aphids, scale, and mealy bug.
