Calathea elliptica Vittata

pet friendly

Description

Calathea elliptica Vittata is from the tropics and likes a humid low light situation making it perfect to put in the bathroom. The Vittata has shiny dark green leaves with white pinstripes. The variegation of this Calathea makes it a rare collectors plant and looks great in a pot. 

They are fairly common as houseplants and require plenty of warmth and humidity. Calathea can be a bit more temperamental so we recommend using a sustee watering device if you would like to nail it when houseplant watering is of concern.

In the winter, when the plants go into dormancy (and sometimes die back completely), give them bright light to maintain growth.

Quick Facts: 

  • What to use me for: I am a great bathroom plant 

  • I grow to: 30cm high, 20cm wide 

  • Where to place me: I like a spot with medium-light and definitely no direct sunlight 

  • Watering conditions: I like deep water every few days, just make sure I don't get too wet. I am fussy. 
  • Soil Conditions: I like a good quality potting mix and gosh a pot with a hole in it, please!

Our plants are beautifully grown, mature tube stock with well-developed roots. They are guaranteed sun-hardened, can be planted directly into the ground and are excellent performers for your garden.

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

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