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. High humidity and persistent watering will help this plant thrive. Pet friendly!

I originally ordered a Calathea ‘Vittata’ for my collection. Not long before it was to shop I received an e-mail from Pistils telling me that the specimen was not up to their standards. I was offered a refund or a choice of two other calatheas. I chose Calathea ‘Makoyana’ and am very happy with it. It’s a healthy and vibrant plant. I am also very happy with Pistils attention to detail and quality control. Thank you!
Arrived in great condition. Pistils Nursery is my go-to nursery for mail order plants!
I really couldn't be happier with my first order from Pistils (it is already not my last order, either...) My plant arrived very well packaged and healthy - the leaves were in perfect condition! This little plant makes my day and it already has unfurled a few new leaves!! Thanks for brightening up my home. :)
