If it's stunning foliage you are looking for, the Rose Painted Calathea is the plant for you! Native to Brazil, it has gorgeous green variegated oval shaped leaves with pink markings. This plant will look great placed high up or on a table as it will allow you to enjoy both sides of the decorative leaves.
Light conditions: indirect, bright light (for example not on a windowsill that gets direct sun at any point in the day) as the direct sun could scorch the leaves.
Neediness: needs care to keep it looking its best, if the environment is not humid, it will need regular misting to increase the humidity. Remove dust with a damp cloth to help the plant breathe.
Watering: water weekly throughout the warmer months but only if the top layer of soil is dry to touch. Water less frequently during the cooler months. Do not allow soil to become soggy as this could damage the roots.
Ideal location: kitchens and bathrooms.
Rate of growth: average, maximum height will be approx. 80cm
Temperature: keep at normal room temperature, avoid cold draughts and don’t let the temperature drop below 15c.
Pets: this plant is toxic to cats and dogs. See our range of pet friendly plants if your pet is prone to nibbling.
