Calathea ornata - Pinstripe Plant
Sale specimens are smaller than traditional specimens. Overall height 6"-10". Product photography shows traditional specimen.
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.
Calathea ornata prefers medium to bright indirect light. Keep guarded from direct sun and mist periodically to increase humidity around the plant and keep its leaves lush. Set on a pebble tray to add extra humidity and keep leaves from crisping.

The Calathea Ornata Pinstripe plant that I ordered is doing very well. I didn't notice until my husband said how its straight up in the early morning hours and then it lays (leaves spread apart) in the afternoon hours..very interesting. I'm just anxious to see how full it will get.
