Calathea Concinna 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.

Additional Information

History and introduction of Calathea Concinna:

Native to Brazil, Calathea Concinna is found in slightly moist soil with bright, indirect light. The soil, while moist, drains quickly so that the roots don’t constantly stay wet. Thus, the plants like some humidity and can survive with little to no direct light. The leaves move upwards, near vertical, come nighttime when the light is no longer available. Many have hypothesized why some plants do this, but there is not a consensus.
