Aphelandra squarrosa ‘Dania’

£10.99

Aphelandra squarrosa ‘Dania,’ commonly known as a Zebra Plant, is a visually striking tropical plant loved for its distinctive foliage. Originating from Brazil, the leaves are broad, lance-shaped, and boast an attractive pattern resembling zebra stripes. The contrasting colours typically consist of deep green and ivory or light green stripes. The highlight of this plant lies in its vibrant flowers. When flowering, typically occurring in late summer or early autumn, the zebra plant displays tall yellow bracts that can last up to for six weeks.

This plant can be high maintenance and might not be a suitable option for those new to caring for houseplants.  Nonetheless, with some extra tender loving care and attention, your zebra plant can flourish!

Plant care

Pot size 12cm - Height (including pot): 30cm approx.

Zebra plants thrive in indirect light or partial shade, as they're used to growing under a canopy of trees in warm and humid climates.

Water frequently in small amounts as Zebra plants likes to be moist, but not wet. As it prefers consistent moisture, the plant's soil should never dry out.

Your zebra plant prefers temperatures above 18°C to thrive. Avoid cold draughts and sudden temperature changes.

Ideal humidity is over 60%. To increase humidity use a pebble tray (filled with water), combined with grouping the plant with other plants can work well.

Considered non-toxic to pets and humans. Deadhead (or remove) withered flowers after flowering.
