Calathea (Prayer plant) varieties for sale

The family of Calathea plants is very large. They come in all shapes and sizes and they all have uniquely coloured leaves. With so many different varieties, there are many different nicknames. Besides "prayer plant" and "living plant", some species are also called "peacock plants". 

Many Calatheas have distinctive designs on their leaves. The design of the Calathea Makoyana closely resembles the feathers of a peacock. The stem and the underside of the leaves have a beautiful purple colour, which it does not hesitate to show at dusk.

Another impressive lady is the Calathea Medallion. Its beautiful oval leaves have a wonderful pattern that almost gives the impression of being painted. The colour pattern, which ranges from dark, bright green to creamy white, combined with the shape of the leaves, resembles a medallion, hence the name.

The Calathea Orbifolia is distinguished by a wide variety of colours. Not because of the different colours, but because of the size of the leaves. The green leaves are decorated with silver stripes and can grow up to 30 cm wide. This puts it at the top of the list of largest leaves in the Calathea family.

Other true works of art are Calathea Zebrina and Calathea Lancifolia. These gems are sold as baby plants, so you can watch them grow every day. If you prefer a big plant right away, the rare Calathea White Fusion comes highly recommended!

Calathea care

Despite the many varieties of Calathea, they are relatively easy to care for. They quickly show when they are unhappy, which makes it easy to react. Is your Calathea curling up her leaves or not standing up at night? This is a sign that your Calathea is not feeling well. She follows the movements of the sun to get the right amount of sunlight. Therefore, it straightens its leaves to reduce the amount of light. Leaf curling is often linked to low humidity. Temperature can also be a cause. If it is too cold, she will curl her leaves to keep herself "warm". Pretty cute, isn't it? If you are more curious about how to take care of your Calathea, check out our PLNTSdoctor page.
