Zebra Plant Lost All Leaves


Klvm added on June 18, 2012 | Answered

I bought a little zebra plant and it has slowly lost all its leaves. They had gone brown on the tips. There is one tiny new leaf at the top of the stem. The stem seems to be in fine condition. I am wondering if there is any hope left for this plant? Will leaves grow back?

Zebra plant is a common name used for 2 very different types of plant One is a succulent of the Haworthia clan, usually quite small when you buy it, with long fleshy leaves pointed at the end. The second is a flat-leaf plant from the aphelandra species. The succulent needs to have its soil well dried out between waterings, though not completely bone dry; the leafy plant wants to stay "evenly moist", but not soaked. Move your stem to a spot in your house with more light, try to adjust the moisture per above, and watch for spider mites - they especially like aphelandra, and could also cause all the leaves to drop.
