I. Light:

  1. Bright, Indirect Light: Position the Zebra Aphelandra in bright, indirect light to maintain its vibrant foliage.

VIII. Support:

  1. Sturdy Pot: Use a stable pot with good drainage to support the Zebra Aphelandra’s growth.
  2. Repotting for Refresh: Repot every 1-2 years to refresh the soil and provide more space for growth.

IX. Reproduction:

  1. Through Stem Cuttings: Propagate through stem cuttings placed in a well-draining rooting medium.
  2. Node Planting: Plant cuttings at nodes for increased chances of successful propagation.

X. Common Issues:
