My first calathea. Easy to propagate by division, forgiving & great company. Yup, I said company! Listening to her leaves brush the wall & other plants as she goes to sleep at night made me feel less alone during the UK Covid lockdowns. My favourite plant child!

Kinda tricky to take care of if you live in a dry place like me (SoCal). But has a lot of personality. I love how the leaves raise at the end of the day/during the night!

Absolutely stunning centre piece plant, but browns easily so watch out for that 💖

my favorite calathea i own, she was my first ‘high maintenance’ plant and she took a beating when i was figuring her out just to continuously explode with 4-6 new leaves a week. not to mention, my cats completely chewed on half the leaves and she didn’t skip a beat. we love her.
- keep humidity above 50%
- water when almost dry
- medium/bright indirect light
easy as pie
