Day 140 : Spathiphyllum

Love the Spathe bushes downstairs and the vulgar elegance that the blooms exude… The white heart-shaped petal inspires pristine innocence yet the erect stamen sticks a phallic effigy in our faces!

Spathiphyllums are very useful houseplants though. Other than their flowers being quinessential in funeral wreaths, the plant has been recognised to be an effective biological agent that cleans the air of containminants. Such pretty air filters they will make around the house 🙂
