When I met Ken I had LOTS of house plants. And some came with me to Turtle Lake. Ken took over the houseplant tasks. And he had great success with all the plants I brought EXCEPT the peace lily or spathiphyllum I brought. It likes filtered light and Ken was of a more light the better philosophy. That spath fried and died.
When Ken died, his aunts and an uncle on his mother’s side – the Billys had the florist bring a plant – a peace lily. Under my care it seems quite happy – lots of blooms. And Ken’s sister Anna, whose thumb is as green as Ken’s was, said she was impressed!
