Calathea ornata - Pinstripe Plant
Calathea ornata is also known as the "Pinstripe Plant" for good reason – its elongated, dark green leaves are lined with electric pink stripes. Seeing this plant for the first time, it's hard to believe it's not been painted - the pinstripes are so delicate that they look like brushstrokes, contrasting beautifully with plant's deep green leaves and dark purple undersides. Give Calathea ornata a central place in your home and this indoor plant is sure to draw comments and admiration.
• Light: Medium to bright, indirect light
• Water: Water when the top 1-2" of soil feels dry
• Considerations: This plant demands high humidity to keep foliage pristine – mist regularly or set on a pebble tray. Pet friendly!

Plant was received in excellent condition, and looks beautiful! No broken leaves, just a few minorly curled edges that were easily pruned off and now she's happy!
