The Zebra Peacock Plant (Calathea zebrina)

This one is a slight play on the traditional Peacock plant - it has slightly different markings and a more lime green tinge. Calathea are an amazing variety of plants, also known as the "living plant", as they move their leaves to face the light.

Where is the Zebra Peacock plant best suited?

Most of the Calathea varieties prefer fairly bright, but indirect sunlight. They will tolerate low light rooms, but the plant may experience slightly wilted leaves and a slower growth rate. Ideal place is close to a window or in a well lit room. 

What about water and humidity?

Try not to dry out the soil to much, or the Calathea zebrina will start to wilt. Keep the soil constantly moist, but be sure not to overwater. Allow plenty of drainage to stop the plant sat in stagnant water.

How big will my Zebra Peacock plant grow?

These are fairly small house plants, and you wouldn't normally expect these to reach heights of more than 60cm or so in ideal conditions.
