The single leaf, also known as leaf flag, peace lily or, botanically correct, spathiphyllum, is an extremely elegant and grateful houseplant. The plant, which originates from the South American rainforest, feels particularly comfortable in a light but not directly sunny location and - typical for rainforest plants - needs a lot of moisture.

The single leaf likes it tropically humid

Keep the leaf evenly moist

For this reason, you should always keep the single sheet slightly moist, but avoid waterlogging. Excess irrigation water must be able to drain out of the plant pot, although you should always remove it from the saucer or planter. However, short-term "wet feet" do not usually harm the plant. The right time to pour is always when the substrate has already dried on the surface. However, how much water the single leaf actually needs depends on the individual location. The brighter and warmer the plant is, the thirstier it is. During the winter months, the room temperature should be a few degrees lower and the frequency and amount of watering should be limited.

tips

Since the single leaf also requires high humidity, you should spray the leaves (not the flowers!) regularly.
