    about this plant
    The Calathea Orbifolia is an impressive lady. She overrules the other Calatheas when it comes to the width of leaves. These oversized green leaves are decorated with pretty silvery strokes. Just like many Calatheas the Orbifolia is also known as ‘The Living Plant’. This means that during the day she is a true show-off as she opens her leaves. When the night falls, she slowly closes them again for a good night of sleep.

    The Calathea Orbifolia is a South American 'living plant'. Calatheas can be a bit picky and Orbifolia is no exception! Because of her roots from the humid Amazon region, it is wise that you always keep her soil moist, without water remaining in the bottom of the pot. She needs little light, but likes warmth and high humidity. A semi-shade spot near a north-facing window, for example, is perfect. She also likes it when you spray her leaves with water every now and then! Do not be alarmed when she closes her leaves at night, she will open them again for you in the morning light.

    This plant came to me well protected, hearty, and beautiful. Calatheas are picky about their water so I'm extra careful to keep her happy with filtered water. The varigations are somehow both bold and subtle and it looks wonderful wherever I place it.

    Absolutely beautiful plant! The leaves are healthy (although one had a bit of brown spots) and was delivered in a protective, well-packed box. It says easy to maintain but upon reading further about the plant, it's actually not for beginners as the plant can be a bit picky about the water/humidity level. But still, it's a gorgeous plant to have.
