Night Light Chamaecyparis Care
The Night Light Hinoki Cypress grows in USDA Zones: 5-8.
Plant this Chamaecyparis in rich, well-draining soil for best results. Additionally, avoid poor draining planting locations. Standing water from slow-draining soil will lead to root rot, and the expiration of your plant.
We recommend providing supplementary watering for your new plant regularly during the first growing season to ensure that it establishes deep roots. Check frequently to ensure that it isn’t getting too much or too little water.
The Night Light Chamaecyparis prefers Full Sun, with Partial Sun being acceptable in most zones as well.
