This stunning big Calathea houseplant is the perfect addition to bring the outside in and is sure to add unique style to your home office or living space.

This Calathea is all about the leaves, also known as the prayer plant, their leaves are beautifully patterned, much like a painting we think!

These stunning leaves close up at night, hence its nickname of prayer plant. This plant spends much of its life under the dense jungles of South America. The underside of the leaves is as interesting to look at as the top, so think about placing it somewhere where you can get a glimpse of both. It doesn’t want to be in full sunlight so indirect light will suit it fine.

If you have pets, then the Calathea is a great plant to add to your collection as it’s pet-friendly too. Take a look at our full guide on pet-friendly plants.

As this is a natural plant from a mix, the variety of Calathea will vary from the photos shown. We think all of their patterns are beautiful!

I’m not just pretty, I am pet friendly too!

Please note: This plant and pot/ basket will come in separate boxes, you simply drop the plant in its growing pot, into the ceramic and it is ready for its forever home! The ceramic is sized to allow the growth of the plant.

Please note: the pattern, colour and texture of the ceramic pots will vary as they are all hand made, making each and every one unique. Don’t think of these as flaws, we think they are just as lovely as each other.

Plant Care

This beautiful big Calathea should be watered once every 7-10 days and we’d suggest you keep checking the soil especially during Summer to ensure it hasn’t dried out. A medium-lit spot with indirect light is perfect for these beauties – just be careful in the Summer months as they don’t love direct sun, as it can scorch their leaves.

Treat him to a little mist every week or so to keep those leaves looking lush and don’t forget to dust them too! Trim off any discoloured leaves as they grow to ensure they look perfect and encourage new growth too!

Don’t forget to keep them out of draughts and away from radiators. They’ll thrive in medium light and high humidity so are perfect for a bathroom or kitchen.
