Aphelandra 'Zebra'

$ 26.00
Size: 4" Pot
Living up to its bold moniker, Aphelandra 'Zebra' is a striking houseplant native to the tropical regions of the Americas. With leaves that showcase an incredible contrast of dark green and bright, creamy white stripes – further highlighted by its glossy, almost reflective surface – this magnificent specimen can grow up to 2 feet in height and width, giving it a commanding presence in any setting. When well-taken care of, its leaves will maintain their vibrant zebra stripes, ensuring that this plant remains a focal point wherever it is placed. In a terrarium or larger container, the 'Zebra' will grow upwards, its leaves forming a lush canopy of striking foliage. In smaller pots, it may adopt a more bush-like appearance, with leaves densely packed to create a dramatic display of pattern and color. Despite its exotic origins, the 'Zebra' is a relatively slow grower, but this allows for easier management of its size and shape. At the base of the plant, where the stem meets the soil, it may develop a sturdy, woody stem, providing a robust foundation for the foliage above. The Aphelandra 'Zebra' isn't just about its eye-catching leaves, though. In the right conditions, it will produce stunning yellow flowers, their vibrant hue providing a beautiful contrast to the striped foliage. These flowers are usually produced in the summer months, but with the right care, they can appear at other times of the year as well. The Aphelandra 'Zebra' is a bit of a diva when it comes to its care requirements, preferring a humid environment, plenty of indirect sunlight, and regular watering. But for those willing to provide these conditions, the 'Zebra' will reward them with a spectacular display of tropical foliage and beautiful blooms. It's a fantastic choice for anyone looking to add a touch of the exotic to their home or office, and it's sure to be a conversation starter for any visitors. The Aphelandra 'Zebra' isn't just a houseplant – it's a statement piece, a living work of art that brings a touch of the wild into your space. With its stunning striped leaves and vibrant flowers, it's a plant that refuses to be ignored. And while it may require a little extra care, the rewards are well worth the effort. Whether you're a seasoned plant lover or a beginner looking for something a bit different, the Aphelandra 'Zebra' is
