Aphelandras like bright, filtered light. Do not expose to direct light. Do not let the soil dry out; use lukewarm water to keep soil temperature elevated.
Mist frequently during growing season.
Zebra plants prefer temperatures above 60ºF. Larger varieties cannot survive below about 70ºF.
Aphelandras prefers rich, organic potting soil.
Feed weekly during summer with liquid fertilizer or use slow-release pellets at beginning of every growing season.
Aphelandras are non-toxic to cats and dogs.
