This radiant Calathea variety is identifiable for its large, deep green foliage with light pink pin-stripes and rich purple colour on the bottom of the leaf. Like other varieties of Calathea, expect the leaves to open and close with the time of day. This beautiful plant makes for a striking addition to indoor jungles.
- This plant will tolerate low light conditions; however, it will perform best with filtered or dappled sunlight. You would want to place it in a well-lit room with windows, but away from direct light.
- Plants with medium or moderate water needs should be watered when the top inch of soil is dry to the touch. We encourage allowing tap water to sit for 24 hours before using. This allows some of the chlorine to dissipate.
- Calathea do not require a lot of fertilizer. Apply in spring, summer, and fall only. Use a balanced fertilizer 20-20-20 NPK. If you are in doubt about fertilizing then don't worry about using it.
