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!
