Calathea zebrina earns it common name 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.
Each leaf can grow over 12 inches tall and mature clumps of this tropical perennial can grow over 2 feet wide and tall. Like many species of Calathea and like its close relative Prayer Plants, Calathea zebrina’s leaves fold at night, adding even more interest to the attractive striped foliage.
Like all varieties of Calathea, Calathea Zebrina only thrives in a consistently warm and humid year-round environment.
