Photos depict the 6" Calathea orbifolia specimen with mature foliage. 4" specimens have juvenile foliage - see below for listed dimensions.
Calathea orbifolia is a gem amongst foliage plants. This hard to find Calathea has broad bright green leaves, delicately striped with silvery-blue patterning that looks almost metallic. Elegant and understated, this Calathea is prized for its round leaves which grow quite wide as the plant matures. The new leaves emerge beautifully from the center of the plant, which grows densely and can get rather large for Calathea - up to 2.5' tall and wide, with leaves stretching over 8".
Calathea orbifolia prefers medium to bright indirect light. Keep guarded from direct sun and mist regularly or keep on a pebble tray to increase humidity. Calathea orbifolia is sensitive to environmental stress, and prone to occasional brown edges/spotting on leaves as shown in the product photos. Water when the top 1-2" of soil feels dry.

My happy little plant came packaged so nicely and perked up almost right out of the box. She's already produced two new leaves and seems to be staying happy (which is more a testament to her health upon arrival - not my plant care ability). I've coveted one of these for a long time and am enjoying her so much :)
