The peace lily is our favorite among indoor plants with little light
Easy to care for and very elegant: this is how we can describe the peace lily. This beautiful ornamental plant enchants us not only with its thin green and slightly shiny leaves, but also with its delicate white flowers. This is actually durable and you can enjoy it for a long time. The peace lily is also known under the names Einblatt, Scheidenblatt and Blattfahne and also by the botanical name, Spathiphyllum. The peace lily grows tall and reaches approx. 45-90 cm, makes a good shape everywhere and is relatively undemanding. It can do well in a location with little light, that is, the single leaf likes shady and dark places. Direct sunlight can be harmful to the elegant green leaves. However, it really requires regular watering and likes the high humidity. Under no circumstances let the potting soil dry out! The peace lily will thank you for your care and show you its delicate white bloom!
Wax flower (hoya)
Number 2 is the wax flower!
The wax flower or porcelain flower in German is also popular under the name Hoya. It grows quite slowly, has extraordinary, magnificent flowers that look like they were made of porcelain or wax. This is where the two names of this beautiful and easy-care houseplant come from. She loves air dryness and can tolerate a humidity of 60%. The wax flower thrives very well in bright indirect light. But it also does this in darker locations. Please do not change your location, otherwise it will not bloom! Hoya is considered a sturdy houseplant, but amateur gardeners need a sure instinct to properly care for them. Our advice is: pour the wax plant with low-lime water and then let the pot ball dry off! This is how you would present your Hoya with magnificent flowers!
