Uncommon Indoor Houseplant Can Filter Toxins from Air!
The ‘Domino’ Peace Lily is a Variegated peace lily variety that is not as commonly seen as an indoor houseplant as its solid green cousin.
With unique green and white striped foliage and the classic white peace lily flowers that rise above the evergreen foliage, it is not hard to see why so many tropical plant enthusiasts are interested in it. The shiny dark green and white streaked leaves will become more variegated if given more indirect sunlight. The white flowers usually appear in the spring and summer growing seasons.
As a natural air detoxifier, NASA has deemed this plant in the top 5 for removing pollutants from the air. The toxins it can remove include benzene, formaldehyde, trichloroethylene, xylene, and ammonia. We recommend keeping this plant in your bedroom at night to help you sleep. There are many other Peace Lily benefits including preventing mildew formation and beautifying rooms.
Some other great interior spaces for the Domino Peace Lily to thrive are in bright bathrooms, living rooms, offices, tabletops, or in-plant stands wherever you deem fit.
Variegated Peace Lily Care
Peace lily plants prefer bright, indirect light conditions for best results. The more light the plant receives, the more variegation will show, and the more it will bloom. Be sure not to expose it to direct sunlight as this can burn or scorch the green leaves and they will turn yellow and eventually brown.
Peace lily watering schedules can change throughout the year. They are thirsty plants and in the warm, summer months it may need watering up to 3-4x/week especially if in a shallow container or being growing outdoors. If you are wondering how often to water a peace lily, the best way to tell is by feeling the soil for moisture or purchasing a moisture meter.
You can grow peace lilies indoors or outdoors as long as they have the proper growing conditions. The mature size of the plant can get up to 2 feet tall and wide. If being grown outdoors, the plant can only tolerate USDA hardiness zone 11 but can be moved indoors for the winter months in other zones. Growing peace lilies indoor, care may differ slightly depending on the humidity, light, and temperatures.
Peace lilies prefer well-draining soil and being planted in a container with a drainage hole. We recommend our Organic Potting Mix with added Perlite as the best option. You can fertilize peace lilies annually in early spring to promote growth and encourage flowering. You can prune the peace lily as desired to maintain size and shape.
It is one of the most popular indoor plants to grow! We love peace lilies for their low maintenance and air purifying qualities.
