Planting and care
Wet feet is probably the major cause of failure when growing zebra indoor plants.A lack of water, however, will cause leaves to curl.Humidity is the next problem to be conquered when growing zebras indoo Plants should be misted several times a week. If the environment is particularly dry, which often occurs during the winter months, rest the pot on a shallow tray filled with gravel and fill the tray with water without its touching the pot.One of the first signs of low humidity is brown edges along the leaves.
