Calathea ornata Sanderiana with pot option

Oh, Calathea ornata Sanderiana! Most likely, you will fall for the prominent pink stripes that perfectly radiate from the centre of her glossy leaf, like a fishbone. To add to her uniqueness, the underside of her leaf has a beautiful reddish-purple colour. She is a perennial plant and part of the prayer-plants or the Maranta family.

Description

Calathea ornata sanderiana is a lovely dark green variety with pink stripes on the leaves. Grown mainly for her foliage, as her flowers only occur sometimes. Now to find her a spot with bright indirect light as she does not cope well with intense light. When she gets direct sunlight for too long, the beautifully detailed leaves will start to fade. As she ages, the pink stripes will turn to white.

She is quite the sensitive wee thing (actually, let's go with stubborn), 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 winter, when the plant is dormant. Her humidity needs to be above average - just saying!

  • Quick Facts
  • What to use me for: I look good in a pot and make a great non-toxic houseplant 

    I grow to: 60cm high, 30cm wide 

    Where to place me: Bright indirect light 

    Please take care when choosing your plants. Some plants are poisonous and individuals may be more sensitive or react differently.

  • Size
  • Currently, I am good to grow sitting at 15cm tall in a 100mm pot. 

  • Growing
  • Drink preferences: I can be a bit fussy - Never allow roots to be soaked with standing water, but they do enjoy continuous water availability in their soil. Water often to obtain this condition (with good drainage). Reduce watering in winter.

    Potting needs: I am nice and compact, so that you can plant me in a small pot. Just make sure it has a drainage hole to breathe and don't skimp on the soil. I really like a good quality potting mix.

    Humidity: A humidifier is just so great for this!

    Tips and tricks: Check out our blog on How to Care for Calatheas 

    When the leaves start to get brown or yellow, it might be in an environment that's too dry for the plant. Make sure your Calathea is getting the humidity it requires. Most bathrooms are great for this.

    When the pink stripes on the leaves start to fade to white, the plant gets too much sunlight. Move it to a place that's a little brighter!

  • Delivery
  • 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!

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