Keep the soil consistently moist, but not waterlogged. Water when the top inch of soil feels dry, and ensure proper drainage to prevent overwatering.
Provide bright, indirect light to maintain the vibrant coloration of the leaves. Avoid direct sunlight, as it can scorch the foliage. A spot near a window with filtered light is ideal.
Maintain a temperature range of 65-75°F (18-24°C). Protect the plant from cold drafts and sudden temperature fluctuations.
Use well-draining, peat-based potting mix that retains some moisture. A blend of peat moss, perlite, and potting soil is suitable.
Aphelandra Squarrosa 'Zebra Plant' thrives in higher humidity levels. Increase humidity by misting the plant regularly, using a humidity tray, or placing a humidifier nearby.
Feed the plant with a balanced, diluted liquid fertilizer every 4-6 weeks during the growing season (spring and summer). Avoid over-fertilizing, as it can lead to excessive foliage growth.
