How to Take Care of Your Zebra Aloe Houseplant

The Zebra Aloe Houseplant has long green triangular leaves with white specs across it which gives it the “Zebra effect” look. The leaves are generally clustered together and do not grow flowers. However, if it’s grown under appropriate weather conditions it can grow a long thin stem flower like spike in the center. They are generally very small plants and grow very slowly.


Zebra Aloe can be damaged by temperatures below 32 degrees Fahrenheit but recuperate quickly. In an appropriate climate, Zebra Aloe requires minimal care once deep rooted. Hawarthia also known as Zebra Aloe is a luscious plant that can last a lifetime. The Zebra cactus likes indirect bright sunlight and because it is low-maintenance it’s a great plant to have as a first time home plant, in the office, or for individuals that are always on the go.

Maintenance and upkeep

The Haworthia fasciata can survive with minimal care and it only requires very little water (1/4 cup) and before watering the plant, the soil should be dry. During the summer, it only requires water every 3 weeks, in the winter time every 3 months due to the rainy winter days. It is highly unusual for a Haworthia to outgrow its pot quickly and is only required when offsets have filled the pot.

Symptoms to see after

If you notice the leaves of the Zebra turning Red, it’s usually a sign that your plant is dying, and usually happens when it has been exposed to too much sunlight or light. The Haworthia can also get black spots on its leaves, and is generally caused by over watering and is an indication that your plant is rotting. Also, if you notice your Zebra Aloe getting wrinkly leaves it’s letting you know that either it needs water or it’s being over watered.

Haworthia or Zebra Aloe Houseplant are very bright and intense which makes them a great gift for any occasion.
