Question: When I brought my zebra plant in for the winter, it dropped all its leaves except for the top four. It looks sick. I transplanted it after I bought it this past summer, and it did just fine until I brought it in for the winter. What can I do for it?

Answer: Like the animal, zebra plants don’t like being confined. Actually, the problem is probably humidity or lack of it. Zebras need high humidity and good light, and prefer a soilless potting mix.
