These stripey stunners make gorgeous houseplants and like all Calatheas, you will notice that the leaves open and close from day to night, typically found in the rainforests of Brazil. 

 

Care: Ideal in lower light or dappled light conditions. Avoid direct, bright light as this will scorch the leaves.

 

Water: Wait until the top layer of soil is dry before watering and avoid over-watering. Soil should be kept moist but not soggy and mist regularly.

 

Toxicity: Pet-safe!

 

Pot Size (approx.): 14cm
