Calathea Rufibarba - Big Babes

Love calathea colours but need some height? Check out calathea rufibarba.

Rufibarba is a bushy plant with narrow leaves typical of calathea in dark green with pink undersides – but wait.

Not only does he have great colour and height, but he’s also a touchy-feely plant too. In fact, his superhero name is Furry Feather Calathea.

Those pretty toned leaves are covered in soft brown hairs that feel like velvet. Kids love them and you’ll have trouble keeping your hands off as well. 

Rufibarba suits shaded areas like an office desk or the bare understorey of a tropical garden, and he’s 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'.

These rufibarbas are big babes that have spent longer in our nursery so you’ll receive larger plants. A 3 pack x 85mm pots in fact. Go big and bold!

Quick Facts: 

  • What to use me for: My tall shaded foliage makes me an unmissable addition to your home, office, or tropical shaded garden. 
  • I grow to: I’ll reach around a metre tall
  • Where to place me: I need a draught-free, light spot in the shade or semi-shade.
  • How far to space me: A metre 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 are beautifully grown with well-developed roots. They 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.

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