Our dark beauty! The Calathea Ornata is one of our shop's favorites! With the most delicate pink pin-stripping on her leaves, this beautiful plant is elegant and subtlety colorful. It can grow to be quite a full and bushy plant, with some leaves stretching to be 8-10" across.
Calatheas like bright, indirect light but are very sensitive to water. We recommend watering with distilled water, making the soil moist but never soggy. (Watering from the bottom of the plant up is often helpful!) It's a little more fussy than some of the rest in it's class, but well worth the effort.
