3.5" Calathea Orbifolia
We don't see this one come up every day so do not sleep on it or you will regret it! The stunning candy stripe foliage of lime and dark green colourings are drool worthy.
Calathea Orbifolia comes in a 3.5" plastic growers pot, plant height ranges 5" to 6" from the base of the pot.
Meet the Calathea, who you might mistake for the Marantaceae (Prayer Plant), the major difference being that the Calathea doesn’t practice nyctinasty. No, that’s not a Dungeons & Dragons term, it’s the term used to describe a plant’s response at nighttime when its leaves fold up. Originating from Central and South America, they’re also commonly found in Africa and Asia. Calatheas are beautiful foliage plants with really distinct visual features (colours, patterns, vibrant ribs and pleated leaves) on their large, oval-shaped green leaves – the Mona Lisa of plants. Slow-growing, there are around 200-300 different species of the Calathea that can grow up to 3 feet, which makes it a lovely choice for floor plants, low plant stands or tabletops.
