Description

The "Zebrina" cultivar of the Spider Plant (Chlorophytum comosum var. variegatum), sometimes mistakenly classified under "Chlorophytum laxum", stands out with its slightly broader, shorter leaves accented by a pronounced green stripe down the centre. Especially during Birak and Bunuru (summer and late summer), the plant becomes even more captivating, producing dainty white flowers. The distinctive charm of "Zebrina" makes it a sought-after addition for any garden or indoor setting.

This adaptable plant can be showcased in pots, hanging baskets, indoors or directly in the ground. Those planting "Zebrina" in-ground with sandy conditions should enhance their soil with a conditioner for optimal growth. While it favours indirect sunlight, its need for water rises in the warmer seasons. A touch of general-purpose fertiliser in Djilba (early spring) is recommended, and occasional pruning helps it maintain its form and vibrancy.
