  • Aphelandra Zebra Plant, scientifically known as Aphelandra squarrosa, is a striking tropical houseplant that belongs to the Acanthaceae family. Originating from the rainforests of Brazil, this plant is renowned for its lush foliage and distinctive zebra-like patterns adorning its leaves, which resemble the stripes of a zebra, hence its name.

    The Zebra Plant features large, glossy, dark green leaves marked with bold, white, and sometimes yellowish veins that create a dramatic contrast, making it a popular choice among plant enthusiasts and interior decorators.

    When provided with the right care, Aphelandra Zebra Plant blooms during the warmer months, producing vibrant, tubular flowers that emerge from striking bracts. These flowers can be yellow or orange, adding an extra layer of color to the already vibrant foliage.

  •  It prefers bright, indirect light.

    Water the plant when the soil is dry to the touch.
    Well-Drained, Porous potting soil.

    This plant should be fertilized once during the growing season (spring/summer) with diluted houseplant fertilizer.

     The Aphelandra Zebra Plant is non-toxic.

    *** The size options are represtentative of pots that the plants come in. Sometimes customer may receive multiple plants instead of a large one to make up size.

    *** All of our packages are sterilized before leaving the door.
  • We only ship out beautiful, healthy plants! Please track your package and open it immediately upon arrival. If you receive your package and are not satisfied, please message us immediately. Fragile plants such as bearpaw, baby toe, etc. may break or loose a few of their leaves during transport. Please contact us for replacements if your plants are severely damaged. We'll try our best to accommodate you. Plants may be slightly larger or smaller than the pot they are grown in, depending on availability or time of year.
  • Provide porous soil with adequate drainage, pots with drainage hole are recommended. Bright, filtered light and ample airflow. Water thoroughly when soil is dry to the touch. Never let your succulents sit in water. Do NOT water on the leaves. If you water from beneath by letting the plant sit in a saucer of water, make sure to pour off any excess water after a few minutes. The hotter it is outside, the faster your soil will dry out, so you’ll need to water more often if you live in a hot area. Water with caution in winter, as the plant can lose its roots if the soil stays cold and wet for extended periods; protect from frost to prevent scarring.
