Calathea orbifolia



This product is sold out


One of the largest varieties of Calathea. It grows round leaves with a striped silvery grey-on-green pattern, and light green undersides.

Part of the family Marantaceae,  they are commonly known as Prayer Plants, and have the interesting behaviour of moving throughout the day. If you notice the leaves stop moving, it could be a sign that it needs more water.

Indoor Care

Bright, indirect or medium diffused light. No direct sun. 

Water enough to maintain even moisture. Do not allow to dry, or to be soaking wet.

Keep humidity high.

Pro tip: Calathea can be big babies, so don't overdo anything or they'll protest. Go easy on fertilizer, don't force them into too much light, and don't push their boundaries with water frequency.
