The Calathea Leopardina, also known as the Leopard Calathea, is a Type 4 plant. This Calathea variety is notable for its eye-catching leaf patterns that resemble leopard spots, set against a lush green background. Its leaves also feature a unique purplish underside, adding to its exotic appeal.


Good to Know

  • Light: Prefers a brightly lit spot with partial sunshine. Can tolerate lower light conditions, but avoid direct sun which can fade the leaf patterns.
  • Water: Likes damp soil. Ensure the soil remains moist but not waterlogged, and never allow it to completely dry out.
  • Soil: Thrives in free-draining, rich soil. Good aeration is important to prevent root rot.
  • Temperature: Enjoys stable, warm temperatures. Keep away from cold drafts and sudden temperature changes.
  • Humidity: Prefers high humidity. Consider using a humidifier or placing the plant on a water-filled pebble tray to maintain ideal conditions.
  • Growth: Moderate growth rate, with the potential to become a lush, full plant under proper care.
  • Origin: Native to South America, known for its air-purifying qualities and striking foliage.

Who's it for?
