About Calathea


Calathea varieties include some of the most stunning foliage plants around.

A good example is the Calathea Beauty Star with its dark green leaves that feature light green highlights and small pink and silver streaks. Or you may prefer the almost painted look of the leaves of the Calathea Louisae Freddy which will brighten any room with its striking foliage. 

The Calathea species generally show off boldly marked, upright, oblong leaves and therefore can often be referred to as the peacock plant. Everybody loves a Calathea but they sure gotta know how to care for them.

They are excellent plants to own if you have a curious pet and Calatheas often feature in our Cat-Friendly Indoor Plant  packs.

Closely related to the popular Maranta and being true tropical plants, they are fussy about their growing conditions, but a well-grown Calathea is so worth the effort we promise. Learn our secrets on how to care for Calathea here.
