Beautiful, but a plant I have really struggled with. The light/ water balance is something I have yet to master

Beautiful leaves with the stripes (and a hint of pink) to give it the pinstripe look. Absolutely stunning! Any Calathea is picky, needs the correct water, humidity and lighting or the leaves brown easy.
