Zebra plant - Calathea

$40.00 – $60.00

Plant Description

Zebra plants have rich velvety green leaves with bold dark green zebra like stripes. Set it against all the other greenery in your house, and the Zebra Plant would stand out like a centrepiece. The incredibly luscious foliage of the Zebra Plant is very absorbent and reactive. Zebra Plants fold their leaves together at dusk and open them again in early morning hours to absorb sunlight. For this reason they are also known as Prayer Plants.

Native to Brazilian rainforests, the Zebra plant is found in forest areas shaded by trees without direct sunlight, so a bright spot without direct sunlight is perfect. With their compact growth habit Zebra Plants are a beautiful addition to a home and with the right care can grow up to a metre in size.
