Beautiful houseplant whose foliage colours burst into life when the sunlight shines through.
With Calathea, it is all about the leaves. They can be pin-striped, rose painted or peacock patterned and are either big oval leaves or thin pointy leaves. The underside of the leaves are as interesting to look at as the top so think about placing it somewhere where you can get a glimpse of both. It doesn't want to be in full sunlight so little shade will suit it fine. Please note the variety of Calathea may vary.
You will not find a more striking leaf design.

Avoid direct sunlight. Find a place of partial shade away from cold draughts. Water once a week to keep the soil moist. Feed with a generic plant feed once a month. A bathroom is a good location as it will enjoy the higher moisture levels. You can also improve the humidity by placing a few plants all together.
