Another beautiful addition to our collection - Calathea Ornata!
This one boasts striking dark green leaves with very distinct pink lines throughout the leaves.
It's such a fun plant to observe and make time-lapse videos of - their leaves follow circadian rhythm, and open towards the sun and move throughout the day.
They can be quite challenging plants for unexperienced plant parents - as they can be quietly dramatic, but who's afraid of a good challenge with such a beauty?:)
Your plant comes in a 12 cm nursery pot and is approx 25 cm tall.
Light: Medium-High. Calatheas are used to growing on the floor of the tropical forest, so extreme levels of brightness are not required. However a good spot closer to the window is essential.
Min light - 200 FC, Good Growth - 400 FC
Water: Medium. The watering might get quite tricky, so this is where you need to experiment a bit with the frequency. Wait for the soil to dry a couple of inches before watering.
It loves and needs humidity, so consider investing in a humidifier, or putting it in your bathroom with windows!
Pets: Non-toxic to cats and dogs.
