Zahra's survival guide

Brilliant, beautiful and... temperamental!

Hmmm, decisions, decisions. Is it the flowers or the foliage that make this plant so attractive? Zahra is an Aphelandra Squarrosa or Zebra plant. In her day-job Zahra radiates elegance and sophistication with her voluptuous white veined-leaves prancing about, but at night she doffs the work clothes and gets into something a little more alluring and wild - this is her flowering side! Bright bracts of yellow flowers that can last up to 6 weeks show what Zahra is really made of. Day or night - Zahra is stripingly pretty!

What makes Zahra so special

Zebra plants are finicky (needy!). They crave bright, warm and humid environments - something like a sun room or a conservatory is ideal. Don't have one of those? No problem! Put her close to a bright South facing window and she'll be fine - not too much direct sunlight in the summer however! Keep the soil constantly moist during the spring/summer and the humidity high and Zahra will even bring you flowers!
