Calathea ornata sanderiana

pet friendly


Calathea ornata sanderiana is a lovely dark green variety with pink stripes on the leaves. This is a popular indoor plant is a must for your home with attractive leaf colouring.  Grown mainly for her foliage, as flowers occur when grown indoors only occasionally. Find a low light position to place your Calathea as she does not cope well with intense light. 

She is quite the sensitive wee thing and it has been reported by some growers to dislike tap water and prefer 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.

Quick Facts: 

  • What to use me for: my lush attractive foliage makes me a great addition to home or office and outdoors in tropical shaded gardens 
  • I grow to: 60cm high, 30cm wide 
  • Where to place me: You must put Calathea in a draught-free, light spot in the shade or semi-shade. Make sure that the plant never stands in the sun prefers low light levels. Prefers medium indirect light to dappled sun. Normal to slightly higher humidity will do.
    • How far to space me: 25cm

    • Soil conditions: Calatheas love to dry out a little. If growing me in a pot make sure it has a drainage hole and allow me to dry out a little between waterings

    • My features: Non toxic
