Calathea Zebrina, or more commonly referred to as Calathea Zebra Plant, have uniquely patterned leaves that resemble zebra stripes. These Calathea are striking and easily add some personality and color to any space.
These tropical plants sport a bright green foliage with yellow stripes. In addition to the funky pattern on their leaves, the Zebrina often peaks interest through its soft velvet-like texture. With the proper care regimen, these plants can grow up to three feet tall with their mature leaves spanning up to a few feet in size.
Calathea Zebrina plants are native to Brazil and prefer a warm and humid atmosphere. The ideal care practices for this indoor plant include planting in a well draining potting soil, and keeping the soil moist at all times. If you do not keep high humidity levels in your home, we recommend using a humidity tray or misting your foliage weekly.
As a member of the prayer plant family, this Calathea has leaves that open and close with the light levels. Like other Calathea, the Zebra Plant prefers a bright indirect light and occasional foliage cleaning to prevent pests like spider mites. If the edges of your Calathea begin to turn brown or your plant exhibits leaf spotting, be wary of pest infestations or root rot.
