Calathea Ornata – Medium

(4 customer reviews)


We do LOVE a Calathea over here. This guy has the purple underside that is very typical of Calathea/Prayer plants, and it will pray too. Calathea Ornata will grow upwards, instead of trailing like the Tri Colour Maranta. The thing with this Calathea is that its leaves are shiny and they have a white/pink pinstripe on them. It has all characteristics that make Calatheas our favourites, it’s gorgeous, shade tolerant, pet safe and really packs a punch.

Light : Calathea are usually pretty good at low light spots but with any plant if you want her to grow big and strong some bright light but never direct will serve her best. We tend to keep our calathea in the shade in the conservatory but at home we give them a little more light and they seem to thrive. 

Water: Moist but not soggy soil will keep your Calathea happy. Water when the top few cms of soil start to dry out. 

Humidity: Misting will keep those gorgeous leaves growing nice and big and will also help with dust build up!

Temperature: Your normal household temperature will keep her happy. 

Food:  You can feed your Calathea in the warmer months.

Toxicity:  Non toxic, so perfect to add to your family home. 

Dimensions 12 × 35 cm

The lower smaller leaves could naturally go yellow and die off to allow the bigger newer leaves to grow so don’t worry too much about that. However, lots of yellow leaves can be a sign of over watering.

Brown crispiness of any kind can be a watering/moisture issue. Make sure your Calathea isn’t in harsh direct sun rays and has lots of moisture.
