Zebra Plant Facts

Zebra Plant (APHELANDRA squarrosa 'Dania') got its name from the white stripes on its green-colored leaves similar to the stripes of a zebra.  The  plant with its striking striped foliage and brilliant yellow flowers are a great antidote against the winter blahs.

Size: 150mm pot Med

How to Care for a Zebra Plant

Light: Provide medium to high light for growth; plant likes filtered light behind a transparent curtain, or being placed a few feet away from a sunny window. The  plant will flourish best when given bright, indirect sunlight. Provide very high light for flowering.

Water: Keep the potting mixture moist at all times, but not saturated.   Water thoroughly when the top of the soil starts to feel dry, then drain and discard excess water.

Avoid getting water on its leaves and blot off any water that accidently appears on the foliage. This prevents disease and unattractive spots from appearing. Water less in the winter even after the plant has flowered.

Water the plant once a week should be sufficient; however, do not allow the plant to dry out. If the leaves start to drop, you are probably under watering.  Failure to provide enough water will result in severe
drooping and loss of lower leaves.

Fertilization: During the growing season in spring and summer feed your plant every week.

Grooming:  Clean foliage monthly to remove dust.  To keep the Plant from becoming too leggy, an occasional pinching back will help to keep it full.

Propagation: Use tip cuttings of 3 to 5 inches (7.5 to 12.5) cm) or   leaf-bud cuttings. You can also take some stem cuttings in the spring.

We recommend the Australian Munash Organics soil food and foliage spray to keep you plants happy and healthy!
