Hi all,

I've had a peace lily on my kitchen window sill for about 2 and half years which is doing really well. It's in desperate need of re-potting. It's in a 17cm pot and has 6 flowers ready to open soon.

1) When is the best time to re-pot it?
2) What size pot should I go up to?

Thanks in advance!

if you pot it up in a 9 inch pot with a blend of peat based compost and fibrous compost , give it a good soaking and put it back where it already lives, it shouldnt do the flowers any harm.

make sure it doesnt dry out at all over the flowering period as they will be the first to die back through wilt

Are Peace Lilies Poisonous to Cats, Dogs and Kids?

From the Spathiphyllum family, Peace Lilies aren’t true lilies (Liliaceae) and so don’t pack the toxic punch genuine lilies do. This “lily” is really a “rhizomatous herb” from the forests of South America, more closely related to the Anthurium.

Even so, Peace Lilies do contain oxalates which can irritate an animal’s mouth and stomach. Because the irritation begins at first bite, however, the animal stops eating the plant pretty quickly, avoiding severe poisoning. Cats and dogs that ingest Peace Lily leaves begin to salivate profusely, shake their heads and paw at their mouths.
