The Spathiphyllum Diamond is a special air-purifying houseplant. The leaves are dark green in color and have beautiful white variegation in the leaves. You don’t come across the variegated specimens of the Spathiphyllum that often. While other variegated plants are often difficult to care for, this Spathiphyllum is not so picky. He will soon reward you with lots of beautiful leaves! This plant is also called spoon plant or peace lilly.
In nature you can find the Spathiphyllum Diamond in the Amazon region of South America. Here it grows on the ground in the shade of other plants! The Spathipyllum has been kept as a houseplant in Europe for a long time because of its spoon-shaped leaves. In Greek, ‘spath’ means spoon and ‘phyl’ means leaf, so that’s where he got his nickname spoon plant from!
The spoon plant is slightly poisonous to humans and animals. Therefore, be careful with pets or small children. Place the plant in a spot with shade, partial shade or indirect light. In order to maintain and stimulate the variation, it is advisable to place the plant in a light spot. Keep the soil slightly moist or the leaves will droop badly.
