Calathea Burle Marx
(aka Calathea burle-marxii "Blue-Ice")
I am native to Central and South America.
I was named after Brazilian landscape architect Roberto Burle Marx, and have gorgeous fish bone markings on my leaves.
I can grow to about 15" in height.
I like to be in humid and moist conditions, but please don't leave me sitting in water.
My foliage is my main attraction.
I won't need much grooming.
I can live a long time.
I like to be kept moist but am succeptible to leaf burn from Flouride Toxicity. Ideally give me bottled water that does not contain flouride.
It is disputed as to whether I belong to the Maranta or the Calathea family.
