Being a succulent, the Zebra Plant flourishes in direct light exposure. In its native habitat of the South African shrub lands, the Zebra Plant is accustomed to high levels of sunshine. With this in mind, it is important to consider how much light your Zebra houseplant is receiving. This indoor plant can adapt well to partially shaded areas. Lack of sunlight will lead to thin, lanky leaves. For full, healthy growth, it is ideal to have at least several hours a day of direct sunlight. It is actually possible for your Zebra Plant to get too much sun. With excess light, the leaves will start to turn red or brown (their very own version of a sunburn) and this will be your indicator that it is time to relocate.
Consider giving your Zebra Plant succulent a home on a table, counter or shelf close to a window in order to provide the perfect amount of sunlight. A spot on a window sill will provide ample direct light! If you have a yard or a balcony the Zebra Plant will happily live outdoors as well.
