4" Calathea elliptica 'Vittata'
This gorgeous striped Calathea is bright and cheerful.
The Marantaceae family is commonly known as “prayer plants” due to their circadian rhythmic nastic movement known as nyctinasty in which they move their leaves based on an internal circadian clock! This family contains genera such as Calathea, Maranta, Stromanthe & Ctenanthe.
~Do Not place in full sun or high light. In the wild Marantaceae are tropical forest floor plants. This means they grow best in bright shade to low light conditions.
~Do Not water with tap water that has not been conditioned. Marantaceae are sensitive to metals or excessive nutrients in the water which may cause leaf edges to crisp or burn.
~Make sure to provide moderate to high levels of humidity. If humidity levels are too low [40% or less], leaf edges may crisp or burn.
