Once again, Spathiphyllum are Aroids, like Anthurium and Aglaonema, not
Lilies. You forgot to mention that to grow well, they like wet feet. They
like moist soil and need frequent watering.

Pilea do like moist soil and some species, such as Pilea microphylla, are
self-fertile and can become weeds.
