This very striking house plant has leaves that are bright green with deep white to stripes - hence its name.
New growth emerges from the centre with the existing leaves spraying outwards
A classic tropical under-storey plant, they like plenty of indirect light or dappled shade, lots of humidity and access to regular water for the roots.
They do need high humidity and setting their pot on a tray filled with pebbles and water or regular misting should be an integral part of how to care for a zebra plant. They may thrive in 40-80 percent humidity, but they don't like wet feet. Use potting medium that drains well and keep it moist, not wet
Botanical name: Aphelandra Zebra
