BloomBox Club Plant Care Hub
I am native to the tropical rainforests of South America
I have beautifully decorative leaves that look like a remarkable mosaic of green and yellow
Grown at home I will usually grow to around 40-50cm with a similar spread
Coming from the tropics means I like humidity, also as I am most commonly found growing underneath trees in my usual habitat i like partial shade. Direct sunlight may burn my leaves. Keep me moist
I don't have flowers but who needs them with my highly decorative leaves
I need very little, just take off any leaves that may get damaged
I will last a long time and with the proper care will keep producing new foliage
Keep me moist but don't leave me sitting in water, or I will get root rot
I am a new addition to the Calathea family. Florists often use my leaves for decorative foliage. My foliage can last up to 5 weeks in a vase!
