Calathea roseopicta Illustrus

Mature tubestock, premium and ready to plant!

pet friendly



    Calathea roseopicta Illustrus

    Woah, just step back and admire that foliage again – it doesn’t look real!

    Calathea roseopicta Illustrus is a stunning indoor plant with patterned foliage so beautiful that we keep selling out.

    Each large leaf has a dark green top precisely marked with cream and pink stripes and finished with a feathered edge. Beneath her leaves, you’ll find a bright pink shade to match the top stripes. It’s a heady combination you just can’t stop staring at.

    She'll be sitting pretty in a pot plant on your office desk or coffee table because she’ll cope with the lower light conditions found there, but she’ll have a great time on your shaded windowsill and in a tropical garden too.

    Calathea are pet-friendly so why not put one in every room of your home to purify the air. You can never have too many calathea.

    Calathea like to dry out before having a drink, so hold off watering until the soil is dry on top. Learn how to care for your indoor plants via our blog 'The quick start guide: Indoor plants'.

    Quick Facts: 

    • What to use me for: My lush attractive foliage makes me a gorgeous addition to your home, office, or tropical shaded garden. 
    • I grow to: I’ll reach around 30cms tall – the perfect height for your desk
    • Where to place me: I need a draught-free, light spot in the shade or semi-shade.
    • How far to space me: 25cms of elbow room, please
    • Soil Conditions: I like to dry out before having a drink. Wait for an inch of dry soil in my pot before watering me.


     Our plants can be planted directly into the ground and are excellent performers for the shadier parts of your garden or as an indoor plant.

    We carefully package your plants into a customised box to ensure safe transport, healthy plants and delivery to your door.
