Can someone please tell me the name of this plant. Bought it to day, but he name was not identified.

Also someone gave me a bag of fertilizer granules with an NPK of 21-17-17. Is 21% too much nitrogen for flowers?

Thanking you in advance.

Zebra Plant and yes. Sprinkling high density N across thousands of square feet saves a lot of time. For houseplants you need weak fertilizer, but more frequent attention. Try a liquid fertilizer in a small handheld spray bottle.

From the wiki;

This plant likes lots of light, but not direct. It does not bloom often, but it can be encouraged to bloom by prolonged daily exposure to light. It is also very sensitive to moisture content; too much or too little water will cause the lower leaves to brown and fall off. It likes to be kept moist but not wet. On average needs small amounts of water often rather than a thorough watering once in a while.

The plant flourishes when the temperature is in the range of 18-21 °C (65-70 °F); and will suffer if the temperature drops below 15 °C (60 °F) for a prolonged periods.
