The Little Botanical Calathea

Buy Online

With Calathea, 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 ideally place 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 Calethea may vary.
