The well known and popular Calathea or ‘Prayer Plant’ is a great houseplant, not too difficult to care for and provides plenty of beautiful foliage.
**Pot not included**
Pot size: 11cm
Care advice and additional information
Water - Like all Calatheas, keep the soil moist although don’t allow it to get soggy. Water from the bottom up if possible using clean rain water, filtered water or tap water that has been left to sit out overnight. It’s not a fan of cold water either. Don’t let the soil dry out and keep away from draughty windows and doors. A regular misting will keep leaves clean and happy.
Sunlight - Filtered, bright and indirect sunlight will help this plant to thrive. Avoid direct sunlight to ensure leaves don’t burn or loose their unique markings.
Feeding - Feed once or twice a month during the spring and summer months and hold off during autumn and winter.
Toxicity - Non-toxic, so pet friendly!
All plants come in a plastic nursery pot and Kraft compostable brown paper bag. Plants can be wrapped in coloured Kraft paper (black, pink or green) for free but by request beforehand to prevent wastage. All plants will include a care card.
