The leaves on this beautiful botanical can be pin-striped, rose painted or peacock patterned. The underside of the leaves are pretty stunning too, so we’d recommend placing it somewhere where you can get a glimpse of both.
Also known as the prayer plant, the leaves on this beautiful houseplant close up at night and open up again in the morning, just like praying hands.
Originating in South America, the Calathea spent much of its life under the dense jungles, which is why it likes the shade rather than direct sunlight.
