Whether you are new to growing Calatheas or have a long-term relationship with these tropical beauties, you won’t be disappointed with the addition of Calathea zebrina, with its striking striped foliage. Calathea zebrina earns its common name Zebra plant due to the striking light green and velvety leaves with purple undersides and having dark green stripes running across them resembling a Zebra.
- Provide bright or medium, indirect light. Avoid direct sunlight, especially during the afternoon, which is the hottest portion of the day, or you may notice the foliage losing color or developing burns or brown patches or edges.
- Keeping the soil lightly moist but not too saturated. Don’t make waterlogged soil, but you shouldn’t allow it to completely dry out either. If the soil dries excessively, your plant will wilt and the leaves will curl. Using a Sustee Moisture Meter stick helps to figure out how much moisture is in the soil so you don’t under or overwater.
- Without high humidity, the foliage will turn brown at the tips and edges, the leaves will curl and the plant will fail to thrive. If your home does not naturally have humidity levels of >50%, and ideally >60%, you should definitely take steps to increase this to keep your Calathea zebrina healthy. Place the Calathea zebrina in a room where a humidifier is being used.
