In general, it is always best to provide a potted house plant with a drain at the bottom. If your plant is in a place with little light, it will do less photosynthesis. This reduces plants’ need for water, meaning plants will take less water from the soil. Without a drain, water will only settle in the pot. If the soil is too wet for too long, the plant can rot. Let’s avoid it if you want to be an expert in peace lily plant care.
If you want to work harder, put your lily flower pot on a plate with gravel. Fill the plate with water. This plate creates a more moist environment for lilies as water evaporates from the dish. Make sure that the bottom of the peace lily pot never touches the water in the cup. This can cause plants to get root rot, which we want to avoid! Cover the water in the gravel cup as often as possible so it doesn’t dry out.
Peaceful lilies are like well-drained, waterproof soil. A good basis for peace lilies is peat soil. Peat holds water. If you have ordinary land, add a little vermiculite. This mineral will absorb moisture and keep your plants moist. However, when you increase soil moisture, you must also increase soil drainage. To improve drainage, mix about 1/4 to 1/3 perlite, coconut fiber, or send it to the ground.

Peace lilies prefer moderate watering. Unlike succulents and cacti, don’t let the lilies dry completely between watering times. It’s time to flush again when the top two inches of the soil dry. Never judge when watering a plant requires how dry the top is.
This topsoil dries faster than deeper soil in the pot. Most novice gardeners chronically water their crops. This will eventually cause root rot and give fungi and pests more opportunities to damage plants.
