Basic Care:

  • Light:  Bright, indirect or filtered light in the spring and summer.  It requires 3 months of bright light to rebloom in the fall.  In the fall and winter it requires moderate light. 
  • Water:  Keep soil moist but not wet. 

Zebra Plant's large, pointed leaves are a deep, glossy green with bright silvery veins that create a striped appearance. When the plant flowers, usually in the late summer or autumn, it bears a tall golden flower bract.  The flowers that emerge from the bract last only a few days but the golden bracts last for 4 to 8 weeks.  It is light intensity, not day length, that triggers the flowering process.
