A Relationship With Your Peace Lily

I asked my Mom how to properly care for my new plant:

From: Mom
To: Me

i would get the soil very wet and let it drain.  just observe it as you do it.  and make sure you don't water it again too soon.  eventually, you and your peace lily will have a deep relationship; she will let you know when to water her, and in gratitude she will continue to bloom and be healthy.  (what am i saying?  why am i talking like that?)
