Description

For this plant, it is all about the leaves. Known as the prayer plant, these leaves can be pin-striped, rose painted or peacock patterned and are either big oval leaves or thin pointy leaves. They close up at night, hence its nickname of prayer plant.  This plant spends much of its life under the dense jungles of South America. The underside of the leaves is as interesting to look at as the top so think about placing it somewhere where you can get a glimpse of both. It doesn’t want to be in full sunlight so little shade will suit it fine.

If you have pets, then the Calathea is a great plant to have. Take a look at our full guide on pet-friendly plants.

I’m not just pretty, I am pet friendly too!

Please note that as this is a natural plant, the variety of Calathea may vary from the photo. We think all of its patterns are beautiful!

Plant Care

Avoid direct sunlight. Find a place of partial shade away from cold draughts. Water once a week to keep the soil moist. Feed with a generic plant feed once a month. A bathroom is a good location as it will enjoy the higher moisture levels. You can also improve the humidity by placing a few plants all together.
