Make sure you use distilled water. I found by doing so it grows more and gets sm taller. It can get top heavy tho so make sure you don’t use too much

Easy to take care off. Don’t give them too much sunlight. If you do it turns a reddish tint, warning you to give them less sun. Simply place in a window that gets some shade or area where it’s not too sunny. Indirect sun is better. It likes to stay rather dry as a succulent. Make sure your soil is a nice cactus gritty blend.

I’ve had this plant for a year or so and it has yet to show signs of it sickness! It has grown, but not a whole lot, and it doesn’t take much care to keep alive and well. Keep of of windowsills or large exposures to sunlight, however. One time, tried to give it a large amount of sunlight, and it seemed to have a red/brown sunburn of sorts. When removed from the windowsill, it returned to its beautiful color. Overall, an amazing plant!!

I received this little guy as a Christmas gift years ago and I didn’t realize he was alive almost a year later; we all thought he was fake. He immediately grew as soon as I began watering him! I love my Zebra plant.

Bought mine from a Walmart i believe. It was extremely root bound in it’s tiny pot. Found a salsa bowl and drilled a couple drainage holes in the bottom and transferred it to that and it’s been thriving ever since. I even got it to bloom once 🥳 typical succulent care. Likes lots of bright filtered light and very little water. Super easy!
