Getting to Know Phyllis Hi! I'm Phyllis, and my name originates from Greece and means "green leaves". I am one of the most common house plants because I’m not fussy about soaking in the sun – actually, I prefer being away from direct sunlight – and cannot stand drafts. I like being at home or in the office because I can filter out five toxins from the air: benzene, formaldehyde, trichloroethylene, xylene, and ammonia.
Caring For Phyllis
💡 Light Medium-low light. If placed in direct sunlight for long periods, the leaves will yellow, die, and fall off. Place Phyllis up to 8 feet from a window, and she’ll do just fine.
💧Water Water every week. Try to keep soil evenly moist but not soggy. You can tell Phyllis needs water when her leaves slightly droop.
🙏 Care Tip Chlorine in tap water can damage your peace lily. We recommend filtered water or leave your tap water out for 24+ hours, so the chlorine breaks down.
