Calathea // Ornata

Commonly known as: pinstripe

Calathea ornata is distinctively recognizable because of it's dark green leaves and thin pink stripes.

Calathea varieties include some of the most stunning tropical foliage plants in the world and are often confused with their close relative Maranta or the “prayer plant”. These plants grow on the bed of the tropical forest and have large leaves to catch the dripping water from trees.

It can handle low-medium light but the variegation shows best in bright light. Keep it away from direct sun.

Prefers high humidity and moist soil. Regular small amounts of water is ideal, but be careful not to drown the plant.
