Beautiful foliage Calathea. Funky foliage creates a amazing silhouette to perfectly accent any room.  Presented wrapped in kraft paper or a seagrass basket.


Calatheas are part of the ‘prayer plant’ family, Marantaceae. The prayer plant nickname stems from the daily movements of the plants leaves, known as nyctinasty. Some plants in this family move their leaves up at nighttime and lowering them in the daytime in accordance to a circadian rhythm. 


Calatheas are also considered pet-friendly plants, making them great plant picks for anyone that shares a space with curious pets. 


Calatheas thrive in medium to bright indirect light, but can tolerate low indirect light. Water every 1-2 weeks, allowing soil to dry out half way down between waterings. Expect to water more often in brighter light and less often in lower light. Calatheas prefer higher humidity if possible. They prefer temperatures in the range of 18°C-30°C, similar to their tropical native habitat. Do not to let the temperature reach below 15°C to avoid cold damage.
