Most rainforest plants need the same kind of care, in order to keep them alive and flourishing just remind yourself of how the different layers of the rainforest work and how most of them are in moist conditions and they rarely get direct sunlight.....
If you could get rainforest soil that naturally would be best so instead you should use a organic or nutrient rich soil.
You need a well drained soil.
Mixing the soil with small broken bark and moss mixed into the soil works.
Keep the soil moist, but don’t over water or allow the soil to be flooded. Allow it to dry out a bit before watering aging.
Its good to use a time released fertilizer which is my favorite to use. Once every 3 months is more than enough. Zebra plants are really the best house plants and easy to care for and will last for many years and longer.
Treat this plant as if it’s living in the rainforest. It should never be put into direct sunlight but likes bright light.
