Benefits of the Aphelandra Zebra Plant

Air Purification: Aphelandra Zebra Plant is renowned for its air-purifying properties, effectively removing toxins such as formaldehyde, benzene, and trichloroethylene from indoor air. This can lead to improved air quality and better respiratory health for indoor spaces.

Aesthetic Appeal: With its striking foliage characterized by bold, green stripes against a deep, glossy background, the Aphelandra Zebra Plant adds a touch of exotic beauty to any indoor environment. Its vibrant appearance can enhance the ambiance of homes, offices, or other interior spaces.

Low Maintenance: This plant is relatively low maintenance, requiring moderate watering and indirect sunlight to thrive. It is resilient and can tolerate occasional neglect, making it an ideal choice for busy individuals or those new to plant care.

Stress Reduction: Studies suggest that indoor plants, including the Aphelandra Zebra Plant, can help reduce stress and promote a sense of well-being. The presence of greenery indoors has been linked to improved mood, increased productivity, and decreased feelings of anxiety.

Natural Humidifier: Aphelandra Zebra Plant releases moisture through its leaves, contributing to a more humid indoor environment. This can be beneficial, especially in dry climates or during the winter months when indoor air tends to be drier, helping to alleviate respiratory discomfort and dry skin.

Non-Toxic: For pet owners or households with children, the Aphelandra Zebra Plant is a safe choice as it is non-toxic to cats, dogs, and humans when ingested in small quantities. However, it's still best to keep it out of reach of pets and children to prevent any potential discomfort.


Photographs are representative of the species and not always of the specific plant shipped. Normal variations in size, pruning, and leaf structure may occur.

Sun: Indirect

Aphelandra Zebra Plants thrive in bright, indirect sunlight. Avoid direct sunlight exposure, as it can scorch the leaves. Place them near a window with filtered light or in a well-lit room.

Light: Medium - Bright

Ensure your Aphelandra Zebra Plant receives consistent, moderate light. Too much or too little light can affect its growth and flowering. Aim for a balance to maintain its health and vibrancy.

Water: When half dry

Keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. Water when the top inch of soil feels dry to the touch, usually once a week. Avoid letting the soil dry out completely between waterings, as this can stress the plant.

Humidity: High

Maintain moderate to high humidity levels around your Aphelandra Zebra Plant. Mist the leaves regularly or place a tray of water nearby to increase humidity. Avoid placing the plant near drafty areas or heating vents.

Pet Friendly: Yes

You can feel comfortable having this plant around your home in the potential case where your pet feels like nibbling on it. However, we typically recommend keeping your pets from eating any of your houseplants.

Pro Tip

To encourage prolific flowering and maintain the health of your Aphelandra Zebra Plant, consider using a balanced liquid fertilizer during the growing season. Apply the fertilizer at half strength every two to four weeks to provide essential nutrients for vibrant blooms and lush foliage. Remember to dilute the fertilizer properly to prevent root burn and flush the soil with water periodically to remove any buildup of salts.

Your Complete Guide to Pot Sizes: What Size Should You Choose?

When selecting a pot for your plant, it's important to find the right size. But with all the different options out there, how do you know which one is best? We're here to help!

MyGreenscape's pot sizes chart is a great resource for finding your perfect fit. Our easy-to-read chart takes out all the guesswork and helps you quickly choose the right size for your plant.

Smaller pots are best for seedlings or small plants just starting out. These tend to be shallow but wide, allowing enough room for the roots of the young plant but not too much where they get overcrowded. Medium-sized pots are ideal when your plant has grown from its infancy and is ready for more space. These are deeper and wider than small pots, so that it can accommodate larger root systems - making sure your plant gets enough nourishment while still giving it breathing room. Large pots are top choice if you have an established plant in need of lots of space - think trees and large shrubs! The spacious depth and width allow plenty of room for deep root systems without struggling for air or light.

No matter what size you choose, MyGreenscape has got you covered, with our pot sizes chart guaranteeing you find the perfect fit every time!
