It does well in low light areas and is a perfect gift for a housewarming party or special occasion. You need to only water around once a week when the soil dries. The Spath is a perennial plant that blooms throughout the spring and summer. Spaths require little pruning and can make great gifts for first-time plant owners. These plants look great on a window sill, kitchen counter, or in your entryway.
