Calathea of all stripes are eye-catching, but the delicate white banding on Calathea 'Vittata' is particularly striking as it appears almost hand-painted. Like most members of the Marantaceae or "Prayer Plant" family, Calathea 'Vittata' has a habit of opening and closing its leaves as day transitions to night. It's leaves are a stunning reminder of the beauty of the natural world. Fortunately, it also makes an easy-care houseplant.
• Light: Medium to bright, indirect light
• Water: Water when the top 1" of soil feels dry
• Considerations: Like most Calathea, the Vittatta does not like to dry out completely. High humidity and persistent watering will help this plant thrive. Pet friendly! Check out our Prayer Plant Care Guide for more in-depth information.
