Calathea Burle Marx has oval leaves that look as if the plant is painted. Its colors are typically a variation of dark and light green.  It does especially well in low light areas. It is a part of the Marantaceae family, and likes bright, indirect light at most, as the colors will fade and the leaves will burn if exposed to too much direct light. These plants like to dry out some between watering.

  • Has an eye-catching pattern on the foliage.
  • Low, creeping houseplant.
  • Does best with rainwater or tap water that has sat out for a little bit.
  • The best temperature for these plants is between 65 to 85 degrees.

Calathea Burle Marx looks like it's been painted, and likes to dry out between watering. While it is tolerant of wet roots, it prefers not to be that way. The foliage will fade or burn if exposed to excessive light. The foliage is both cat and dog safe, according to the ASPCA Plant Toxicity List. This family of plants is known for its bright, intense foliage as it performs well indoors and holds its color without much light or care.
