Calathea Roseopicta

Calathea Medallion is a classic beauty 

Calathea roseopicta, commonly known as Medallion is a classic Calathea variety with large dark green leaves, banded with silver and emerald green. The backs of the leaves are a gorgeous deep red-purple.

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.

Care and Maintenance

These beautiful plants are a tad bit snobby about their water intake--they do fine with tap, but prefer filtered water. Try and avoid the leaves when watering and keep the soil a tiny bit moist. It likes moderate to high light, but no direct sun.
