The Zebra Plant is a popular succulent houseplant native to South Africa. It is small in size with a rosette of stiff, opaque, linear leaves that are covered in attractive white spots.
The Zebra Plant is a slow growing succulent, but has a long life span of up to 50 years. In the wild, these plants grow in very harsh conditions and are commonly found buried in sand. For gardeners, they are easy to grow, preferring a well-draining soil mix. Also, unlike other Haworthiopsis or Haworthia, this plant can grow well indoors or out and will tolerate mild frost. While they are somewhat tolerant of low-light conditions, they prefer full sun or bright direct light, which also produces the best colors in the leaves. Zebra Plant produces pups and offsets and to propagate these plants, separate the pups or remove the offshoots from the parent plant.
