Zebra house plants (Aphelandra squarrosa) have spectacular foliage and exotic looking flowers. The nickname Zebra plant comes from its large, dark green, shiny leaves that have a bold white midrib and white veins. The stems of the leaves have a purple tinge. The bright yellow flowers on a Zebra plant emerge from bracts at the end of a long stem.
The zebra plant likes bright light but does not do well in direct sun.
Try to position the aphelandra plant so it gets most of its sun either in the early morning or the evening while avoiding the bright midday sun.
When placed indoors in a room temperature setting, the zebra plant should thrive year round. Outdoors, the plant enjoys moderate climates.
The recommended temperature range is 65° – 75° degrees Fahrenheit during the summer and about 60° degrees Fahrenheit in the winter.
Zebra plants should be watered once or twice per week during the summer.
It’s also a good idea to mist the plant to provide some added moisture to the foliage and flowers.
The plants arrived in perfect and were packed with so much care. They are healthy and thriving. Thank you so much Crazy Plant Bae for the high quality, gorgeous plants. I love browsing your rad collection for my next plant babe purchase. You rock - I’ll be back.
