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.

I have been obsessed with calathea’s lately. This calathea ornata is such a great addition to my collection. It arrived in good shape and is holding up well.
I have always been skeptical about purchasing plants online, but make no mistake, Pistil’s Nursery is worth the try. From the company’s eco-conscious packaging to its affordable selection of plants for sale and the personalization notes attached to your purchase, I cannot be more satisfied with my first online plant purchase. My plant baby came in happy and ready to join the other members of my plant family. What more could I ask for? Pistil’s Nursery, I’ll be back. :)
A beauty of a plant
Obsessed with this plant! I have a cat and love the fact that it’s pet friendly! I also love the care and instructions given when you get the plant delivered. I don’t have a natural green thumb so it was helpful for me! Would definitely order from this site again!
