Availability: In stock

Calathea's are a great family of plants. They all have beautifully patterned leaves and all are non toxic to pets. Calathea's get their common name Prayer Plant by the way their leaves move to point upwards at night time like praying hands. The Roseoptica is a real stunner with super deep pink, almost black leaves with a bright pink pattern. They have an equally beautiful deep pink underneath.
The Surprise Star and Dottie are very similar. The Dottie has even darker leaves and the pink pattern is thinner and more refined.
- Size: 14cm pot diameter, 35cm approx height including pot
- Environment: Tropical
- Light: Ideally bright indirect but can tolerate lower light (although will grow slower in lower light)
- Humidity: High. Will require misting if it's not in a humid environment
- Water: Ideally they would like to be kept lightly moist but if in doubt it is better to let it get a little dry between watering than to drown it. They will tolerate going thirsty
- Problems: Yellow leaves = too much water. Brown, crisp leaves = not enough water or humidity. Droopy leaves = not enough water.
