Peace Lily

Spathiphyllum sp

Description:

Spathiphyllum is a genus of about 40 species of monocotyledonous flowering plants in the family Araceae, native to tropical regions of the Americas and southeastern Asia. Certain species of Spathiphyllum are commonly known as Spath or Peace Lilies. They are evergreen herbaceous perennial plants with large leaves 12-65 cm long and 3-25 cm broad. The flowers are produced in a spadix, surrounded by a 10-30 cm long, white, yellowish, or greenish spathe. The plant does not need excessive light or water to survive.

Spathiphyllum sp is the one in bloom.
Pereskia sp (a cactus) is the one with a little fruit; the leaf with strips looks like
Sanchezia nobilis.
