Native to South America, the "Pin Stripe" Calathea is a tropical plant with a unique leaf pattern that appears painted on. These glossy deep green leaves with their pink painted stripes are a great addition to any houseplant collection. Like all calatheas, this plant likes to dance throughout the day, moving its leaves up and down to absorb the needed amounts of light.
Best kept in a bright location with no direct sunlight. Providing adequate humidity is a must, a humidifier or pebble tray can help keep your humidity levels up. Keep your soil moist without being soppy, the consistency of a wrung out sponge is about right. A peat based soil mix will help retain moisture while also ensuring your roots get enough oxygen. In the winter water less, allowing the few top inches of soil to dry.
Available in 6" container.
