Description

This Pin Striped Calathea is nontoxic making her pet and kid-friendly, she also purifies the air and removes nasty toxins like a true champ. We gotta warn you - she is on the slower side and has a rep for being a bit sensitive but she will reward you with pretty, lush foliage. If you are struggling to grow this babe some people find she doesn't like tap water and prefers distilled or rainwater. Allow her soil to be lightly moist but never soggy or wet. The top of the soil should be allowed to dry out a little, especially during wintertime when the plant is dormant. 

Our plants are beautifully grown and have well-developed roots. They are hardened, can be planted directly into the planters, and are excellent performing Indoor plants - it’s our plant promise guarantee!

  • How to water me
    Make sure the first few cms of my soil are dry to touch before watering again usually I only need a drink every 1-2 weeks and even less in winter.  We recommend using a humidifier for Calathea varieties, they dig humidity!

    Potting needs
    I really like a good quality potting mix and will do well in a 170mm pot. 

    Tips and tricks
    If you notice yellowing leaves at the base, don't stress that is just my leaves naturally dying off so just cut them at the base
