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 indoors. 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.
