The Zebra Plant (Alocasia zebrina)

A real underrated beauty. The Alocasia zebrina is elegant and understated, with gorgeous zebra-esque markings up it's stems. The leaves fall like pointed hearts, and curl slightly at the end. 

The zebrina is one of the best looking of all of the Alocasia species. 

Where is the Alocasia zebrina plant best suited?

These really are "middle of the ground" plants. They won't tolerate direct sunlight, in fact it can be detrimental to the leaves, and you might see browning and curling as a result. They're also not great in particularly low light levels, and you'll find they will stretch and lean to find light. A fairly bright, indirect light source is ideal.   

What about water and humidity?

The Alocasia zebrina like humid conditions, and they make ideal kitchen and bathroom plants. Ensure the soil doesn't fully dry out, and give the whole plant - leaves included - a misting once a week or so.  

How big will my Alocasia zebrina grow?

Whilst you rarely see large specimens of this species - more than 60cm or so - they do exist! Some of the international growers have managed heights in excess of 2m, so they have the ability to grow rather large given the right conditions. You're unlikely however to see your plant reach more than around 80cm in a standard home, in a standard plant pot.
