About Zebra Plant
Grown as a broad-leaf evergreen and as a houseplant. Prefers a well-drained acidic potting soil and high humidity. No serious insect or disease problems but look out for aphids, scale, and whiteflies. Cut plants back after flowering to manage growth.
How to care for Zebra Plant
Zebra Plant needs 0.5 cups of water every 9 when it doesn’t get direct sunlight and is potted in a 5" pot.
Use our water calculator to personalize watering recommendations to your environment or download Greg for more advanced recommendations for all of your plants.
Zebra Plant may have difficulty thriving, and will drop leaves 🍃, without ample sunlight.
Place it less than 3 feet from a south-facing window to maximize the potential for growth.

Most potting soils come with ample nutrients which plants use to produce new growth.
By the time your plant has depleted the nutrients in its soil it’s likely grown enough to need a larger pot anyway.
To replenish this plant's nutrients, repot your Zebra Plant after it doubles in size or once a year—whichever comes first.
