This handsome Calathea Rufibarba  is native to the rain forests of South America.

It has bluey-green elongated leaves, held by upright stalks with a striking purple underside. As it matures, this plant's elegant foliage begins to cascade over the edge of the pot. 

This calathea comes from the hot and humid South American rainforests. This means it will be like a misting on a regular basis.

 

 

TIP: grouping your humidity loving plants together will help to help the atmosphere in dry rooms in your home. This can help with things just as dry skin, irritable eyes and respiratory issues. 

 

Place in a light but not a bright spot in your home and keep out of direct sunlight. Make sure it has a good constant temperature. 

Check that the top layer of soil is dry but that the lower soil is kept lightly moist. Use collected rainwater or bottled, distilled water without fluoride. 


Delivered in a 11cm plastic pot.

Pet safe.
