Brighten up any space with the vibrant, stripy leaves of the Calathea Leopardina.
Being part of the Prayer Plant (Marantaceae) family, at night the leaves will slowly close upright, almost like the plant is ‘praying’, and in the morning they will slowly fold downwards again.
Light – They thrive in bright, indirect light but can also handle slightly shadier light levels. Avoid direct sunlight as Calatheas are prone to sun burn.
Water – Water when the top two inches of soil feels dry. Calatheas love high humidity so never let the soil fully dry and try to boost humidity in your room. Try a sitting your plant on a tray of wet pebbles or treat yourself to a wee USB humidifier! Bathrooms are also a great location for this plant.
