Several months ago I posted a message about my Peace Lily not flowering this year. GPI gave me some reasons including, feed, light and plant being pot bound. So I decided to change the feed from baby bio to a tomato feed and if that didn't work I would try repotting it next year. Well I am happy to report that the plant has now 3 flowers ready to unfurl. I am delighted as the plant belonged to someone who is no longer with us. I am glad to see it back to its old self again.
Txs GPI.

( Idea Tomato feed for flowering plants, Baby bio for leafy plants!!)

Nice to see that your plant is thriving again Marge. Its leaves are so glossy. Are you using any special product or method to get them that shiny.

Hi Birdie

I just use tomato feed now, and I give them a wipe with a soft cloth and lukewarm water every now and then. But I have to admit that I used the flash on the camera when I took the photo, so alot of that 'gloss' is the flash light.
