Calathea

£13.00

Beautiful houseplant whose leaves burst into life when the sunlight bursts through in the morning and then close again in the evening.

SKU: TLB_HOU001_04

Description

For this plant, it is all about the leaves. These can be pin-striped, rose painted or peacock patterned and are either big oval leaves or thin pointy leaves. There are a myriad of different looks. This plant spends much of its life under the dense jungles of South America. The underside of the leaves are 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 little shade will suit it fine. Please note the variety of Calathea may vary.

Plant Care

Avoid direct sunlight. Find a place of partial shade away from cold draughts. Water once a week to keep the soil moist. Feed with a generic plant feed once a month. A bathroom is a good location as it will enjoy the higher moisture levels. You can also improve the humidity by placing a few plants all together.

Why i’m great

You will not find a more striking leaf designs and I also like to move my leaves to follow the sun.
