Tax included.

Another absolute mind-boggling Calathea! The variegation alone will make you speechless for days. The leaves look almost multi-dimensional with the striped yellow-green background and large dark green ovals. 

Originally from the Brazilian tropical forests, the Calathea thrives in indirect light with no direct sun. Here’s a tip for creating the ultimate urban jungle: place Calatheas under larger plants to simulate its original environment in the Brazilian tropical rainforest. It thrives under the shade of large tropical trees.

Plant Care Level: Easy to Medium

    Care Instructions


    Prefers bright, indirect light with no direct sun.


    Keep soil moist, do not let it dry completely.


    This can be done every 12-18 months. Choose a pot that is 2” larger in diameter than the original pot.


    Use a well-draining, high organic matter soil mix.


    Average from 65°F - 75°F


    Follow a monthly fertilizing schedule when the plant is actively growing. In most cases, this is in the spring and summer. Use a balanced fertilizer - this means a ratio of NPK that is all the same. Ex: 10-10-10.


    Wipe the leaves every few weeks to remove debris.


    Calatheas can be sensitive to tap water. If you notice brown leaf edges, switch to rain or distilled water and ensure the environment you place your plant in is high in humidity.
