Pleasant Peace Lily is an evergreen, almost stemless herb, with elliptic-oblong leaves, 20-35 cm long and 10-20 cm broad, on thin leaf-stalks, 20-40 cm long. The inflorescence is formed by a spathe which resembles a leaf, with a sharp tip, about 18 cm long and 6-8 cm broad, of a pale green color and by a cream-white spadix, 5-8 cm long. Spadix is what carries the actual tiny flowers. The fruits are berries containing oblong seeds almost kidney-form. It reproduces by seed and by division. Pleasant Peace Lily is native to the humid forests of Belize, Guatemala and Honduras, now cultivated worldwide as a house plant.
