It is a species of flowering plant commonly known as a peace lily. These compact peace lilies are native to Central and South America and are prized for their elegant, dark green leaves and white, hood-like flowers. Spathiphyllum pygmaeum, as the name suggests, is a smaller variety of peace lily, making it a great choice for smaller spaces or as a tabletop or desktop plant.
Caring for Spathiphyllum pygmaeum involves providing it with indirect light, regular watering, well-draining soil, and maintaining appropriate humidity levels. This compact peace lily retains the air-purifying qualities of its larger relatives and is relatively easy to care for, making it a popular choice among houseplant enthusiasts.
