A tropical perennial native to southeastern Brazil, Calathea zebrina, also called the Zebra Plant is easier to locate than some Calathea varieties. The striking light green and velvety leaves with purple undersides earn their common name due to the dark green stripes running across them resembling a Zebra.
Each leaf can grow over 12 inches tall, folding at night and mature plants can grow over 2 feet wide and tall. Although Calatheas rarely bloom as houseplants, Calathea zebrina produces insignificant whitish-purple flowers in spring.
Low to medium light, keep out of direct sunlight.
Water regularly, keeping the soil moist but not very wet.
Fertilize monthly to bimonthly.
Tolerates 21 to 29 degrees Celsius.
