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!

I have never ordered a plant and was expecting to have to coax it back to health after a stressful journey. I was pleasantly surprised that it arrived in perfect condition. It was lovingly wrapped with care. She fits in perfectly and is thriving. It was love at first sight when I visited Pistils years ago. Despite now living hours away now, I will continue to shop here.
The plant was packaged perfectly, and it arrived in perfect condition. This is the second Calathea plant that I purchased from Pistals nursery, and I have been very satisfied each time. They have great customer service, and keep you informed of the status of your plant delivery.
Ordered my first plant from Pistils Nursery and what a great experience! From the moment I placed the order, Pistils kept me informed on the shipment and delivery of my beautiful plant. Plant arrived in great shape with easy to follow care instructions. I will definitely order from Pistils Nursery again!
