This little Calathea Freddie is a stunner!
Its highly patterned foliage makes for a striking houseplant. It's a tropical plant that originates from Brazil - where it grows under the tree canopy.
Like a lot of low light plants, Calathea tends to grow fairly slowly. They don't tend to grow much taller than 2 feet.
It's a great small houseplant for bathrooms and kitchens. It likes high humidity, so can be placed in other rooms but you may want to consider a humidifier.
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.
Make sure your Blue Grass is in a pot with drainage holes in its base, if the soil becomes waterlogged, it can be affected by root rot.
