Calathea vittata has stunning bright green foliage with creamy white stripes that look as if they were painted. Like other varieties of Calathea, expect the leaves to open and close with the time of day. The Vittata makes a great indoor houseplant for shelves, window sills, or desks.
- These plants need filtered or dappled sunlight. You would want to place them in a well-lit room with windows, but away from direct light. A sunny window with sheer curtains is also a good idea.
- Plants with medium or moderate water needs should be watered once or twice a week. They need moist soil throughout the growing season for optimum growth and flowering. Water these plants when the soil is dry to touch.
