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".
• Light: Medium to bright, indirect light
• Water: Water when the top 1" of soil feels dry
• Considerations: Calathea orbifolia is sensitive to environmental stress, and prone to occasional brown edges/spotting on leaves. High humidity and persistent watering will help this plant thrive. Pet friendly!
