Zahra's survival guide
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!
