Goeppertia zebrina, formerly known as Calathea zebrina or commonly referred to as "zebra plant" or "zebra calathea," is a striking tropical houseplant admired for its unique foliage. Here's a description and care guide for this beautiful plant:

Description:

Goeppertia zebrina is characterized by its elongated, lance-shaped leaves with bold stripes resembling the stripes of a zebra, giving it its common name.
The leaves have a deep green color with contrasting stripes of light green or silver on top, while the undersides are often a rich purple hue.
The foliage is held on long, slender stems, creating an elegant and architectural appearance.
In addition to its attractive foliage, Goeppertia zebrina may produce small, inconspicuous flowers on long stalks, although these are not typically the main attraction of the plant.

Care Tips:

Light: Goeppertia zebrina thrives in bright, indirect light. Avoid direct sunlight, as it can scorch the leaves. Place the plant near a window with filtered sunlight or in a well-lit room.
Temperature: Maintain moderate to warm temperatures for Goeppertia zebrina, ideally between 18°C to 24°C (65°F to 75°F). Protect the plant from drafts and sudden temperature fluctuations.
Humidity: This plant appreciates high humidity levels. To increase humidity, you can place the pot on a pebble tray filled with water or use a room humidifier. Misting the leaves occasionally can also help.
Watering: Keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. Water when the top inch of soil feels dry, typically every 1-2 weeks depending on environmental conditions. Ensure proper drainage to prevent waterlogging, as this can lead to root rot.
Soil: Use a well-draining, peat-based potting mix to provide adequate aeration for the roots. A mix formulated for tropical plants or African violets works well.
Fertilization: Feed Goeppertia zebrina with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer diluted to half strength every 4-6 weeks during the growing season (spring through summer). Avoid fertilizing during the winter months when growth slows.
Pruning: Remove any yellowing or damaged leaves promptly to maintain the plant's appearance and overall health. You can also trim back leggy stems to encourage bushier growth.
Potting: Repot the plant every 1-2 years in spring or early summer to refresh the soil and provide room for growth. Choose a pot that is slightly larger than the current one and has drainage holes at the bottom.
Pest Control: Keep an eye out for common houseplant pests such as spider mites, aphids, and mealybugs. If necessary, treat infestations with insecticidal soap or neem oil.

By following these care tips, you can help your Goeppertia zebrina thrive and enjoy its stunning foliage year-round as a beautiful addition to your indoor plant collection.
