There are many plant species in the Calathea plant family. This is Calathea Zebrina with beautiful, velvety foliage. It is commonly known as zebra plant. this name is based on the zebra stripped leaves. It can be grown in a regular potting mix. keep it evenly moist but not wet. Please avoid direct sunlight, too much sun can cause leaf burn. This plant requires a bit more care, and it only produces flowers once in two years time, at least to my this potted Calathea Zebrina. But I appreciate the dark green leaves very much.
