This plant is also known as the Zebra Plant. It likes lots of light, but not direct. It does not bloom often, but it can be encouraged to bloom by prolonged daily exposure to light. It is also very sensitive to moisture content; too much or too little water will cause the lower leaves to brown and fall off. It likes to be kept moist but not wet. On average needs small amounts of water often rather than a thorough watering once in a while.
The plant flourishes when the temperature is in the range of 65-70°F; and will suffer if the temperature drops below 60°F for a prolonged period.
