The stunning Zebra Plant really is one of the most striking houseplants on the market, but you will have to give it some love and attention in exchange. To keep it looking as great it requires higher humidity, so this might be a candidate for misting or keeping in a room that gets some steam! While they thrive in 40-80% humidity, but they don’t like wet feet, so use a potting medium that drains well and keep it moist, not wet. If the Zebra Plant is being over watered (or under watered for that matter) it will drop leaves.
Summer is the time for bloom, and it is the bracts that provide the yellow, orange, or red-tinged ‘flower.’ The true flowers die within days, but the colorful bracts can remain for months. The intriguing foliage and the production of the beautiful bracts are your reward for the care you give your plant.
