Calathea zebrina, aka the Zebra Plant, has light green leaves with distinctive dark green striping throughout the entire leaf and a light green central leaf vein. The underside of the leaf is purple. But though this plant is an increasingly popular choice, it remains a relatively high-maintenance houseplant and requires a bit of extra TLC to keep those leaves perky and shining. This plant prefers medium, indirect light and will scorch in direct sunlight. Keep the soil evenly moist, never allowing it to completely dry out. Providing adequate humidity is also important. Fertilize once per month during the growing season. You can do so by misting or providing a humidity tray. This plant is safe for pets.
Calatheas can also be a little sensitive to salts in tap water- if you find that their leaves are browning along the edges or at the tips, it could be due to salt accumulation. You can remedy this by providing them filtered water or rainwater.
