This beautiful Zebra Plant, is probably best known for its white striped green leaves and its beautiful orange yellow flowers.
The Aphelandra Squarrosa prefers a place with lots of light, but no direct sunlight.
Keep moist, the potting soil should not "dry out," especially during the growing season, use soft water and make sure the roots are not in a layer of water. Give less water in the winter.
After flowering you can remove the flower with the stem.
