Calathea zebrina is native to warm and humid tropical rainforest regions of south eastern Brazil. It is named as 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. It’s leaves fold at night adding even more interest to the attractive striped foliage.

Plant Care Tips

Most plants thrive in high humidity — around 80%.

Using a humidifier can help, but there are other ways to increase the moisture in the air near your plants. A small tray containing pebbles and water can boost local humidity as can grouping plants more closely together. Daily misting of the plant’s leaves can help as well. For some plants, such as gardenias and orchids, keeping them in a bathroom or the kitchen (both usually have a higher humidity) can help.
