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!

Obsessed with this plant! I have a cat and love the fact that it’s pet friendly! I also love the care and instructions given when you get the plant delivered. I don’t have a natural green thumb so it was helpful for me! Would definitely order from this site again!
Very pleased with the plants I ordered as my first purchase from Pistils! Healthy, full, and well packed. I look forward to more! Thank you!!!
I received my Calathea Ornata about 5 days ago and it is so beautiful. The plant was packaged carefully so it survived wonderfully. I am following the directions that came with the plant and with some internet guidance the plant seems to be adjusting well. I cant wait to repot it!
