Aphelandra squarosa 'Snowflake

14.99 $

Aphelandra squarrosa 'Snowflake' is an attractive variety of the zebra plant, famous for its distinctive foliage and impressive blooms. This houseplant is particularly prized for its broad, glossy dark-green leaves, adorned with striking white veins, and for the bright yellow bracts that emerge in summer and autumn.

Origin: Native to the tropical forests of Central America, particularly Brazil, Aphelandra squarrosa 'Snowflake' thrives in warm, humid environments, where it benefits from abundant, filtered light.

Growth: Aphelandra squarrosa 'Snowflake' is a relatively compact plant, usually reaching a height of around 30-40 cm. It is often grown as an indoor plant because of its needs in warm, humid climates, which can be difficult to maintain outdoors in colder climates.

Flowers: The inflorescences of 'Snowflake' take the form of bright yellow bracts that are quite large and can last for several weeks. The true flowers are small and less conspicuous than the spectacular bracts.

Light: This variety prefers bright indirect light but can suffer if exposed to too much direct sun, which can burn the leaves. A location near an east- or west-facing window is ideal.

Watering: Aphelandra squarrosa 'Snowflake' requires regular watering, allowing the substrate to dry out slightly between waterings. It appreciates high humidity, so spraying the leaves or using a humidifier can help mimic its natural environment.

Substrate: Use a well-draining potting mix rich in organic matter. A tropical plant mix, amended with perlite or vermiculite, is ideal to ensure good drainage while retaining the necessary moisture.

Toxicity: Aphelandra squarrosa 'Snowflake' is not known to be toxic to humans or pets, but it is always advisable to keep plants out of the reach of children and pets to avoid any risk.
