This zebra houseplant is known for its large shiny leaves and dark green foliage deeply veined in white or yellow, reminiscent of zebra stripes. Their brightly colored flowers and bracts make for a prized display. They're usually pretty small at the time of purchase and many indoor gardeners consider them a short lived friend.
Because they are tropical, zebra plants prefer warm climates and will do well in average household temperatures around 70°F (20°C) and around 60°F (15°C) at night if they are kept out of drafts. They do need high humidity. 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. Don't let the soil completely dry out, but water a little less frequently.
