Native to the subtropics, particularly the rainforests of Brazil, this stunning decorative plant has gorgeous large dark green with striking white stripes. This plant is a type of Calathea so you will notice that the leaves open and close from day to night. This plant is also a great for air purifying.

 

 

Light conditions: position in a warm spot with bright, indirect light. Direct sunlight will cause the leaves to fade and lose their markings. This plant is a native to the rainforest so can also cope with lower light conditions but will prefer some bright light.
Neediness: for this plant to look its best some care will be involved. Remove dust with a damp cloth to unblock pores. This will help the Plant breathe. Maintaining humidity is important, leaves will go brown at edges if it is not humid enough
Watering: wait until the top layer of soil is dry before watering. Do not over-water, soil should be moist and not soggy. Reduce the amount given during the winter months but do not let it dry out completely. Misting is really important for this plant and it will thrive when misted weekly or if planted in a pot with no drainage holes, mist more frequently.
Ideal location: bathrooms, kitchens, living rooms, studies and corridors
Rate of growth: average
Temperature: avoid cold drafts and keep at a normal room temperature, do not let the temperature drop below 15°C. 
Pets: this plant is non-toxic to cats and dogs.
Sizing: Medium W14cm x H55cm (pictured), Large W19cm x H95cm
Also known as: Zebra plant

As a company we’ve made a concerted effort to switch to sustainable packaging, it costs twice the price but we sleep better at night. Head to our delivery page, for the full lowdown.

      Packaging

      ♻️95% of our packaging is either biodegradable or recyclable (and we’re working hard on that last 5%). 

      • All our cardboard boxes are FSC certified.
      • The peanuts (those squishy looking things 🥜which protect your precious plants) are starch based. Pop them in your sink and cover in water and watch them disappear in seconds. It's magic ~ honest ✨ 
      • We wrap the base of your plant in a compostable bag to prevent loose soil.
      • We pop your care card and gift message in a protective sleeve too, it might look like cello but it's not! It's made in Britain and is both compostable and bio-degradable.
      • Your pots are wrapped in paper cushioning, it's an alternative to bubblewrap. It's both recyclable, biodegradable and compostable.
      • Compostable packaging ~ the lowdown: Small amounts of compostable packaging can be placed in your food waste bins (depending on your council), so both our compostable bags and sleeve could go in there ✅. Alternatively look for a shared compost heap in your area as your local recycling centres are not set-up for compostable waste (currently). Compostable materials leave no toxic substances or pollutants in the soil when they break down. In fact, the compost produced can be used in the same way as soil or plant fertiliser. There is a difference between biodegradable and compostable. Biodegradable simply means a material breaks down into the ground. Compostable materials also break down and far quicker too, but they add nutrients to the soil too, which enriches it. 🌱🌱🌱 

        Returns

        If you'd like to return a living item, let the team know within 7 days by emailing hello@beardsanddaisies.co.uk or live chat if online. Please attach a photo of the faulty or damaged plant. Other items can be returned for a refund within 30 days as long as they're unused and in re-saleable condition.

        In short, if anything isn't right with your order we'll sort it. 

        Your plants have not only been packaged by humans (we’d like to find a robot that could beat our packaging skills) but by our in-house team of plant lovers who have lovingly prepared your order.

        If you’re not happy with your plants, let us know within 7 days, by contacting us via live chat, email or phone and a friendly member of our team will do their absolute best to rectify anything that's gone wrong.

        It's not just the plants that we care about though, we're pretty proud of our market leading (sustainable) packaging too. We’ve created a family of transport boxes with handles and where possible use our 'anti-roll' device which prevents the plant from travelling around should the box be inadvertently tipped upside down during transit.

        Things occasionally go wrong, but we'd like to assure you we're on hand help!
