Do day lilies spread?

Daylilies quickly spread into larger clumps, and eventually they become so crowded that they do not bloom as well.

Can you take cuttings from a peace lily?


As your peace lily grows from year to year, it develops a rhizome, or horizontal stem growing just under the soil surface, that can be divided to propagate a new plant. Cut the rhizome into pieces with sharp, sanitized pruning shears or a sharp knife. Each piece of the rhizome should have one bud or growth point on it.

Can you grow a peace lily from a leaf?

Should I cut the flowers off my peace lily?

Should I repot my peace lily?

The plant will wilt because even though you may water generously, liquid simply runs through the drainage hole. If your peace lily is severely rootbound, it's best to repot as soon as possible. If your plant can wait a little longer, spring is the ideal time for repotting a peace lily.

When should I cut back my peace lily?

Once a stalk has made one flower, it won't make any more – after the flower fades, the stalk will eventually brown and die as well. Peace lily pruning should be done at the base of the plant. Cut the stalk off as close to the bottom as you can. This will make room for new stalks to emerge.
