About Zebra Plant
These tiny succulents are native to Southern Africa, but now grow in homes around the world! Since they're adapted to harsh, dry cliamtes, their succulent leaves store water during the dry season. They also use a special form of photosynthesis that helps them retain water by only exchanging gases at night! 🌌

What other plant parents say
Super easy plant to take care of i highly recommend for first time plant owners. They only need watering every month or so, I’ve also found that they tend to do best when they’re close to a radiator and window (one or both). When in the right conditions they grow babies very quickly. I have found that the tips of their leaves brown very easily but it hasn’t caused any major problems as of yet :)))
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!!
