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.

Perfect Plants’ shipping specialists carefully package your plants using a proven packaging method that ensures your plants arrive healthy, colorfully alive and ready to flourish. We’ve coined the term ‘upside down box test’ and we do just that; we carefully package so that regardless of the direction your box is handled, it will not harm your precious plant that’s inside.
No shipping process is without a problem from time to time. On rare occasions some plants may experience some of the following during their transit: drooping, minor leaf-loss and/or minimal yellowing/discoloration, minor limb damage, etc. These instances are quite rare, but can happen when shipping plants in boxes.
Plants normally recover within a few weeks after planting. If a damaged box has injured your plant on the inside, please notify us within 5 days of receiving you package(s) by emailing us a photograph of the damage.
We always do our very best to ensure that your plants are packed and shipped in the safest, gentlest and most effective way possible.
Will my plants and trees look like the photographs?
Absolutely! Unlike other online nurseries, our photos are of actual plants and trees we’ve grown here, on our family operated nursery.
Growing our own plants and trees helps to ensure we ship you the best quality plants that are free of pests and diseases.
Your plants and trees may however not ship with flowers on them, like the photographs. This all depends on the time of year you buy your plant or tree. Crape Myrtle trees, for example, only bloom during the summer months, so if you purchase one during the spring or fall, they would ship without flowers. Once planted, your plants will grow and thrive giving you flowers for many years to come!
Pot sizes (commonly referred to in gallons) are shipped in the same size nursery trade pots which may vary in actual volume. Some plants may have been at the approximate pot size listed, but require excess dirt to be removed so that you will not be paying any additional shipping costs. This doesn’t happen very often though.
Our shipping charges are based on the value of your order and the destination it is being shipped. Please see the chart on the Shipping Info page to get an exact amount. We frequently have a free shipping promotion to help you save!
Choose a planting location that offers adequate sunlight and shade in a low traffic area. Allow proper clearance for the mature growth size. Well-drained soil is ideal. Water regularly for the first planted year to ensure adequate water is available for establishing a strong root system. Prune as necessary to remove any damaged or dead foliage and to promote a well-balanced structure.
Dig a hole approximately twice as wide as your new plant’s root ball and deep enough so that the top of the root ball is equal with the ground level.
Loosen the root ball using a small garden spade or by hand. Breaking smaller outer roots can encourage growth into the new soil, but take care to not damage large primary roots.
Place the plant in the hole and ensure that it is situated evenly upright. Use the excavated soil to fill in around the root ball, using your foot to pack it in firmly. Thoroughly soak with a hose as you fill in the dirt. Take great care to not leave any gaps or air spaces around the root ball as this could kill the plant.
A 2-4 inch layer of mulch is strongly recommended to help retain moisture and discourage weed growth. Apply mulch over the entire planting area but keep away from the stems or trunk by a few inches. Ensure that the plant and surrounding soil is completely soaked with water.
To ensure the proper nutrients are available for the life of your plant our proprietary Perfect Plants Special Blend Soil and a once yearly application of Nutricote Total 360 Fertilizer are great considerations for your new plants!
