Indoor Plant - Calathea Orbifolia  - 14cm

With large, round, beautifully coloured leaves, the Calathea Orbifolia is a stunning, eye-catching plant that has the ability to brighten even the darkest corner. Calathea Orbifolia loves humidity and will appreciate regular misting - this means they make a perfect bathroom plant if conditions are ideal. It has light green leaves marked with silver stripes, and while it will cope in a darker corner, it will thrive with plenty of indirect light and is a great air purifier.

Calathea has specific care needs - take a look at the key points below to help ensure your customer's success with this plant. 

  • Habitat: Prefers to be kept in warmer temperatures. Avoid sudden temperature drops, and keep away from draughts.
  • Light: Bright, indirect light. Shield from direct sun.
  • Water: Water little and often with filtered, room temperature water. 
  • Soil: Use a well-draining potting mix to avoid root rot.
  • Fertiliser: Feed with a low dose of liquid fertiliser during Spring and Summer.
