Zebra Plant gets its name from white stripes on the leaves. It is one of the best house plants. This plant is not only pretty because of its white-veined, green folliage, but also for the apical inflorescence with its beautiful yellow bracts. Bright light but no direct sunlight is preferred. Water when the soil surface has just begun to dry, however less water is needed after flowering and in winter. Aphelandra drops leaves if over- or under-watered. Ideal growing temperatures are between 65 and 70 degrees. The plant tolerates average home humidity but prefers high humidity. Forcing Zebra Plant into bloom requires a well lit area. Zebra Plant has a winter rest period. Propagation: Propagation is by stem tip cuttings taken in spring and kept at temperatures between 70 and 80 degrees. Keep the cuttings continually moist. Leaf bud cuttings may be used but they take longer.
