The Marble Queen Pothos is a popular, easy-to-care-for houseplant that is known for its variegated leaves and trailing growth habit. 


Light: The Zebra Plant thrives in bright, indirect light. It prefers several hours of bright, filtered sunlight each day. However, it's important to protect it from direct sunlight, as it can scorch the leaves. A north or east-facing window is usually

Watering: The Zebra Plant prefers consistently moist soil. Water the plant when the top inch of soil feels slightly dry. Avoid letting the soil become completely dry or waterlogged. Ensure thorough watering, allowing the excess water to drain away. Avoid overwatering, as it can lead to root rot.

Soil: The Zebra Plant prefers a well-draining, slightly acidic soil. A mixture of peat moss, perlite, and regular potting soil is suitable. Ensure the soil is loose and well-aerated to prevent waterlogging.

Fertilization: The Zebra Plant benefits from regular fertilization during the growing season (spring and summer). Use a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer every 2-3 weeks, following the package instructions for dilution and application. Reduce or stop fertilization during the winter months when the plant is in its resting phase.

Humidity: The Zebra Plant prefers higher humidity levels. To increase humidity, you can place a humidifier near the plant, use a pebble tray filled with water, or mist the leaves regularly. This will help replicate its native tropical environment.

Temperature: The Zebra Plant prefers temperatures between 65-75°F (18-24°C). It can tolerate slightly cooler temperatures, but not below 60°F (15°C). Protect it from drafts and temperature fluctuations.

Propagation: The Zebra Plant can be propagated through stem cuttings. Take a healthy stem cutting with at least three leaves, remove the lower leaves, and dip the cut end in rooting hormone. Plant the cutting in a well-draining potting mix, keep it moist, and place a plastic bag over it to create a humid environment. After a few weeks, roots should develop, and you can transplant it into its own pot.
