  • Position: bright but indirect light
  • Soil: good potting compost
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Hardiness: tender (indoors only)
  • Current height: approximately 45cm (+ or - 10% including the pot)
  • Pot covers: choose a 16cm pot cover to give a good fit over the pot.

    The velvety light green leaves of this fab house plant have irregular, darker toned tiger stripes, which span out from the central midrib. Originating from the forest floor in warmer climates, they definitely have a lush, tropical feel.

  • Home care: Originating from tropical regions, they like relatively stable temperatures (ideally above 15C) and a well-lit position that does not get direct sunlight (think steamy jungle!). They like to be kept well watered, although this can be cut back a little in winter, and they thrive in high humidity, either grow it in a steamy room, mist it with water regularly, and/or sit the pot on a tray of dampened shingle.

This is a fantastic and attractive, unusual plant that really looks wonderful indoors. It loves standing in water once a week and being in a nice window area (not direct sun). Well worth the money.




Beautiful velvet leaves


I am so happy with my Goeppertia zebrina. As with all my Crocus purchases, it arrived perfectly packed and in great, healthy condition. The mention of "velvet" in the plant's description is more than apt. I did not expect the plant to be so soft-looking and tactile, the leaves really do look as though they were made of velvet! A beautiful little plant, I only hope it likes its new home...and that I don't kill it!!
