4" Calathea Exotica (Ctenanthe exotica)
General Calathea Care Tips:
Light: Bright indirect sunlight.
Water: Keep soil evenly moist. These plants prefers moist but not soggy soil.
Humidity: These plants love humidity. A lack of humidity can lead to a lot of issues, including crisping leaves and a higher susceptibility to spider mites. You can increase your humidity with a humidifier, misting the plant, keeping it in your bathroom (so long as there is enough light), or by placing it on a pebble tray.
Arrived very well packaged and in very healthy condition. Beautiful plant
This is easily my favorite plant. This calathea has doubled in size in 6 months and is such a happy plant! I give it bottled water because filtered tap gave it brown tips. So maybe a little bit a diva, but well worth it!
She’s more full and beautiful than the picture
Bought this for a friends birthday, and I was extremely impressed with how it shipped. Thank you again!
Despite being in transit for 5 days because it went to Atlanta to Knoxville back to Atlanta and back to Knoxville, it arrived without any damage or losing any dirt.
Honestly, my jaw still drops every time I open a box from Gabriella. Each and every plant is twice as full as I expected and super healthy. This calathea was no exception!
Plant was bigger than I expected and beautiful!
I mistakenly ordered a 2nd Exoctica and I am so glad I did. This one is a lot larger then the original one I ordered. I have them planted together and the plant is so full ‘
Extremely tall and leggy and had to treat for spider mites right away as you could already see the damage. She’s finally recovering and pushing new growth a few months later.
Perfect!!! I loved all my plants! Being a first time online plant purchaser I’m super happy with my entire experience! Definitely will be back for more plants!!!
I got five plants, I love them all! The package was so wonderful! It’s better then I took from the nursery!
This beauty is a little more Peggy then what I expected but overall a very healthy and beautiful plant! Quickly becoming my all time favorite!
I wasn't sure about this plant but after receiving it I am so in love!!! As always arrived fast, safe and very healthy.
I like this plant, and glad to add it to my collection. I also hoped this would be a bit fuller looking, but it is a healthy plant and I will make it grow. This was my first order, and overall I am pleased. I plan to make orders again in the future. Thank you very much for a great customer experience!
Very beautiful plant!!!
Lovely plant. Packed very well. Arrived in perfect condition.
Absolutely beautiful, healthy, and HUGE plant. I’ve had it for 2 weeks and I already have roots coming out the drainage hole!
So stately and beautiful.
Perfectly chosen just for me! She is so happy in her new home! Thank you!
Came surprisingly quick. A lovely calathea exotica, tall and healthy.
What I said,amother Beautiful plant,Thank you guys and gals
The plant was busting out of the pot! I was not expecting so much plant, but that was a big plus. As always, packaged well and arrived quickly.
Came in excellent condition! Gorgeous leaves! Packaged extremely well! Absolutely love it!
Love this plant! After a few days the leaves are perfectly shaped and sturdy (slightly bent when I received it). Just waiting for it to close. It seems not to do its thing where It’s currently placed. Maybe I have to move it somewhere. But overall, I’m very pleased with this plant. Thank you!
I bought two calatheas, an exotica and an illustris, to add to my growing calathea addiction, as well as an ixora (not pictured but thriving).
All three plants came to me in less than a week, in immaculate packaging, and the plants were obviously very well cared for and adapted quickly to my house.
I will definitely be ordering from Gabriella's again, as I have been testing out online nurseries all quarantine, and this one is by far the best.
Thank you for the amazing plants! :)
They all Came Late but we're in good Shape. I watered and gave proper Lighting and It is O. K.
This was a gift for a friend and she loves it! Came in looking like it was never in the mail. I can always count on you guys to send plants in prime packaging!
Looks awesome, arrived healthy, no complaints!
I ordered two plants from Gabriella Plants; Ctenanthe Exotica and Calathea Orbifolia. They arrived in a perfect shape and condition, meant by no roasted edge leaf nor broken leaf. The cushion in the box in my opinion is the best compare to other vendors. Love the fast service include the email communication. Highly recommended Gabriella Plants to all plant enthusiasts.
This is my first try at a ctenanthe. Love the markings. Plant was wrapped with great care. No misplaced soil or damaged leaves.
First buying experience and it will not be my last. The plants were Wrapped and secured so well they arrived in excellent condition. I love the email updates as they processed my order. So happy with my online buying experience!
As always, the GP team is phenomenal all around! This plant arrived so well-packaged and taken care of, and it’s already open up three new leaves! Love, love, love!
Best experience I have had with a plant company.
Thank you for your high standards!
Came beautifully and packaged super well! Extremely happy with this purchase and it shipped to CA!
absolutely love it! arrived super healthy as always and pushing out 3 new leaves!!
We'll keep you updated.
