How to Grow and Care
Display Zebra Plant anywhere it can receive plenty of sun or bright light. South-facing windows will provide the most sun, however, east or west provide direct sun part of the day that I find more suitable.
During the growing season from April to September water the Zebra Plant thoroughly and then water when the soil becomes dry to the touch (not bone dry though). Winter is a tricky time for these plants although they are a tough species. Many growers will overwater then alongside cold temperatures or drafts the plant can become very sick, or even die. The leaves are storage organs so during the winter water much less and allow the topsoil to dry out.
Use a cactus potting mix that drains wells and provides plenty of air to the small roots. If making your own mix or buying another type, use part potting soil, part perlite, and part sand…. – See more at: How to Grow and Care for Zebra Plant.
