The Variegated Peace Lily 'Domino' is a cultivar of the Spathiphyllum plant species, known for its striking variegated leaves and its ability to purify the air. Here are some care requirements for this plant:
Light: The Variegated Peace Lily 'Domino' prefers bright, indirect light but can also tolerate low light conditions. Direct sunlight can scorch its leaves, so it's best to protect it from too much direct sun exposure. With lower light conditions, you can supplement with grow lights to help your plant thrive.
Water: This plant likes to have consistently moist soil, but not waterlogged. Watering once a week should be enough, but you may need to adjust based on the environment (Ex. brighter light, room temperature, type of substrates and airflow). The plant's leaves will droop when it needs water, so use this as a sign to water the plant. You can also use a moisture meter to check the deeper part of the substrate to know when to water.
Soil: The Variegated Peace Lily 'Domino' prefers a well-draining soil mix that is rich in organic matter and slightly acidic (5.8 to 6.5 pH). An airy potting mix or a mix of peat moss, perlite, and orchid bark will work well.
Humidity: This plant prefers a relatively high humidity, but it can adapt to average household humidity levels. If the air is dry, you can increase humidity by using a humidifier, pebble tray or group plants together.
Temperature: This plant prefers warmer temperatures and can tolerate temperatures as low as 60°F (15°C), but it is best to keep it above 70°F (21°C) if possible.
Fertilizer: The Variegated Peace Lily 'Domino' can be fertilized every 2-4 weeks with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer or half dilution every week. In the winter we would suggest fertilizing every other week with a half diluted solution.
It's also important to note that this plant is highly toxic to pets and can cause digestive issues if ingested. Be sure to keep it out of reach of animals and wash your hands after handling it if you're cutting leaves off.
Additionally, the Variegated Peace Lily 'Domino' is known for its ability to purify the air, removing pollutants such as benzene, formaldehyde, and trichloroethylene.
