Deets: The zebra plant, also known as Calathea zebrina is a lush foliage plant that sports large ovate leaves at the very tips of long stalks. The velvety patterned leaves with bright hues of green are marked with stripes that resemble the stripes on a zebra.
The leaves feature purple undersides, which are usually not visible due to the horizontal growth of the leaves. However, one can see the lovely hue when some leaves grow upright or curve to some extent.
Speaking of caring for your zebra plant, it’s essential to note that it calls for a good deal of care and attention. However, the plant can survive indoors and look amazingly bright, healthy and strong when you follow the right care regime.
