Philodendron 'Gloriosum Zebra' is not a widely recognized or standard cultivar within the Philodendron genus. The name suggests it could be a variation of Philodendron gloriosum, known for its large, heart-shaped, velvety leaves with prominent white or cream-colored veins. The typical Philodendron gloriosum showcases a striking pattern that could be reminiscent of a "zebra" pattern, hence the nickname. 

🌿 Light: Prefers bright, indirect light. Too much direct sunlight can burn the leaves, while too little light can lead to leggy growth and less vibrant foliage.

💧 Water: Water when the top 2-3 inches of soil feel dry to the touch. Philodendron gloriosum likes consistently moist soil but is susceptible to root rot if overwatered. Good drainage is crucial.

💦 Humidity: Thrives in high humidity, ideally 60% or higher. If your indoor air is dry, consider using a humidifier, misting the plant regularly, or placing it on a pebble tray with water to increase humidity.

🌡️ Temperature: Does best in warm environments, with ideal temperatures ranging from 65°F to 85°F (18°C to 29°C). Avoid cold drafts and temperatures below 55°F (13°C).

🌱 Soil: Prefers a well-draining, rich, peat-based potting mix. Incorporating elements like perlite or orchid bark can improve aeration and drainage.

🌱 Fertilizing: Fertilize every 4-6 weeks during the growing season (spring and summer) with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer diluted to half strength. Reduce fertilization in the fall and winter.

🔄 Pruning: Minimal pruning is required. Remove yellow or damaged leaves to maintain health and appearance.

🍃 Pests and Diseases: Watch for pests such as spider mites, mealybugs, and aphids. Proper care and cleanliness help prevent most pest and disease issues. Be particularly cautious of overwatering to avoid root rot.

Propagation: Philodendron gloriosum can be propagated from stem cuttings or by dividing the rhizome during repotting. Each section of the rhizome should have at least one growth point to successfully grow into a new plant.
