Product Information

With large, uniquely shaped leaves, Alocasia 'Zebrina' is an evergreen, ornamental houseplant that makes a unique addition to your home.  The glossy, green foliage is arrow headed and heart-shaped, and this is an indoor plant that's sure to get a lot of attention.

Quick and easy to grow, Zebrina has a distinctive, striped stem with markings that look like a zebra's stripes, hence its name.

This unique, one-of-a-kind foliage plant originates from the tropics of Asia, and prefers a shady area so when growing it in your home, give it plenty of light and water but not direct sunlight -position it by a bright window.

Not only spectacular to look at, leafy tropical houseplants also provide a beneficial air-cleaning service. In a 20-year study by NASA, it was found that houseplants can actually improve the environment in our homes, clearing the air, removing toxins and adding valuable oxygen to the air that we breathe.

Supplied as an established plant in a 13cm pot, Alocasia Zebrina will grow to a height of about 1m.

Note Decorative pot in images is for display purposes only and is not supplied.

Top Tips

Alocasia ‘Zebrina’ requires a lot of light (at least 5 hours a day): if too little is received, the leaves tend to sag so keep it next to a bright wind out of direct sunlight.

Care Information

  • Likes moist but well-drained soil so keep the compost moist with warm water. Do not allow the soil to dry out. Little and often is a good approach.
  • Place by a bright window, but out of direct sunlight which will scorch the leaves.
  • Zebrina prefers above average humidity, so stand on a pebble tray to improve humidity and mist frequently.
  • Water with a general-purpose liquid houseplant feed once a month during the growing season.
  • Give the plant a quarter turn every day to maximise its exposure to sunlight.
  • A tropical plant, Alocasia needs to be kept warm (18-22°C is ideal) and has a dormant period in winter when growth stops, and the leaves may fade and die back. During this period, the plants will require less water, so simply moisten the soil from time to time and rapid growth will recommence the following year.

Note: Alocasia macrorrhiza is harmful if eaten and is a skin and eye irritant to some people. Keep out of reach of children and pets.
