One of our longstanding favourites, the Warscewiczii wins our vote for a number of reasons. This Calathea has a beautiful deep purple underleaf, and from above you will see a dark green leaf with a light green ripple pattern. This plant is often referred to as the "Velvet plant" and after one feel of its leaves, it's not hard to see why. Similar to a prayer plant, Calatheas leaves will unfurl with the sunrise and then close again at night.
Best kept in a bright, humid spot away from direct sunlight. Water frequently to keep the soil most but not soggy. If using tap water it is best to leave it to stand for a couple of hours before using.

This plant comes in a plastic pot. The decorative pot shown in the image is not included with the purchase. All our plants are living objects and will therefore vary slightly in appearance from the images shown. We ensure that all our plants are healthy and of the correct dimensions before they are shipped to their forever homes.
