Temperamental. Had her for three months and I haven’t quite figured out how to make her happy yet. She’s already had spider mites and dropped more than half her leaves, but we have some new growth coming 🤞🏽

Can brown easily if not kept with the right humidity or if in direct light.

I am a massive fan of Calatheas, however, they can be fussy, but with filtered water and good humidity they will thrive

This plant is so needy and is not at all hardy. I was lured in by its beauty and am now very put off by how quickly it died after a small spider mite infestation. Even when fully healthy, it browned easily and lost its prayer motion quickly, and constantly wanted attention.

I am absolutely obsessed with calathea of all varieties, but this was my first love. I find it to be a bit less temperamental than some other varieties of calathea.

Most difficult plant I’ve owned. No matter what I did or didn’t do it slowly died one leaf at a time.

She was pretty while she lasted. I can’t seem to keep these alive! It got pests and browns easily. It would probably be a good plant in a more humid environment.

It’s a fickle plant. Not keen on the species. If it dies won’t replace.

This is the sweetest looking plant with the lovely pink stripes across the deep green leaves. This plant is low light tolerant and forgiving. It’s leaves don’t close/drop as severely as other prayer plants so you can enjoy the pretty pink details of this plant all the time. If you want to bring a little color to your houseplant family, this is a great choice.

One of the most beautiful plants I’ve ever seen! Lovely little pink pinstripes make it a fun and playful addition to any space. It is one of my more needy plants though, and tends to brown easily. I love that it’s cat safe though!
