4" Calathea Vittata

$16.99

 

The Vittata is considered one of more rare types of Calathea plants. Native to South America Brazil, it thrives in lush rainforests under the tree canopy. Their leaves a dark green and decorated with white stripes, with a burgundy underside. Like other Calatheas, the Vittata will fold up its leaves at night, and then "bloom" open to greet the sunshine, giving it the nickname “prayer plant.” 

 

CALATHEA VITTATA CARE

LIGHT

In nature, Calatheas live under the canopy of the large rainforest trees and can only get some indirect light. These plants can be finicky, so you might experiment with different spots until you can make your Calathea happy. The Vittata is happier with less light than too much, so if you see brown spots or crispy edges to the leaves, move it to a place with less light.

WATER

These plants like moist soil, so water when you feel that the top inch or so of the soil is dry. They love humidity, so if you do not have a humidifier, you can put pebbles in a tray and place the pot on top. Any excess water in the soil will drain into the tray and keep the roots humid without adding too much moisture to the soil.

GROWTH HABITS

Indoors, this plant will wind up closer to 2 feet tall. Their growth rate is moderate, and the plant will go through a period of dormancy in winter.

Calathea Care

While this calathea is known for being a little less of a diva than some species in the genus, it still isn't an ideal beginner houseplant. Here are the main care requirements for growing a Calathea musaica:

  • Finding the right balance of filtered light.
  • Fertilize monthly during the growing season with a balanced liquid fertilizer.
  • Needing a high humidity, warm, draft-free environment.
  • Requiring a loose potting mix that retains moisture.
