These are labeled from the lab (creators of this new cultivar) as just "New Medallion" or "Medallion 2" so we are keeping that name. The pattern of the growth is very similar to the traditional Calathea Medallion but with more color overall.
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.
I paid for weather protection. Leaves were damaged because it came too wet and got cold in transport. I reached out to customer service and all they said was to trim the damaged leaves because of their error mailing it sopping wet. And the said overall the plant looks good so they aren’t doing anything to remedy the fact the plant I paid for weather protection on, arrived damage because of them over watering it prior to shipping. Okay, but I didn’t order a damaged plant, I ordered a healthy plant with weather protection.
Love the plant excellent size . She was very wet when I received her hopefully this will not cause any problems.
So much fuller than I expected! This is just a gorgeous plant and you can see how happy and healthy it is!
Plants are decently rooted & very healthy. 5 stars for quality and excellent shipping. Minor crunched leaves-roots look good, all that matters esp. with shipped plants.
Having said that, please correct the name so as to support better & healthier horticultural care-sthg that requires accurate info. Calathea illustris is a synonym for Calathea roseopicta...what I got looks like a C. roseopicta var. Dottie that is not true to type. That’s really ok, still a lovely healthy plant. But hard for people to find accurate care info w/inaccurate names.
The calathea arrived packed well and beautiful! I love the pink coloring! 100% recommend!
This plant arrived with it’s newest leaf curled. After 2 weeks new leaf is fully uncurled in deepening in color. Love it!
Arrived in perfect condition! Already showing some new growth. Very pleased.
Plant acclimated very well. No dead leaves upon arrival. So pretty and lush.
Arrived well packaged and after watering a bit, some sunlight and grow lights, the leaves perked back up within a day! Poor lil guy was just shocked on his adventure in the mail. Totally worth the price, great quality and arrived quick!
Some of my favorites.
The quality speaks for itself!
I have always loved calathea and want to master keeping them alive thru the winter. Learned a few more tricks that I hope works. I have that are doing well. Fingers crossed.
This plant is so much prettier in person! I wasn't sure if I should get it since I tend towards drought resistant plants, but this one has been such a gorgeous addition, and I love to watch the leaves raise and fall throughout the day. Definitely surprisingly obsessed with this one!
Beautiful big dark green leaves with just a hint of magenta on the top and when you turn its leaf you get a while
