Calathea Orbifolia Plants for Sale Online
Calathea Orbifolia is an indoor tropical plant known for its stunning striped, olive-green leaves that can grow up to six inches wide. The distinguishing features of the thick foliage are patterned leaves with strong light green stripes and a more rounded shape than other Calatheas.
This houseplant has broad foliage with a rippled effect that gives it an exotic look. Calathea plants, in general, are known to be a little higher maintenance than the typical indoor plant, but that is only because they are pickier about dry air and tap water. An Ideal Calathea Orbifolia care regimen should include bright indirect light and high humidity levels.
To keep your Orbifolia plant thriving, we recommend misting your plant or investing in a room humidifier. Additionally, you should home your tropical plant in a well-drained potting mix and in a pot with drainage holes to avoid root rot. The plant will also benefit from applying a well-balanced fertilizer in the growing seasons of spring and summer.
As a member of the Prayer Plant family, the foliage of this plant moves in the direction of the light. Calathea orbifolia brings personality and color to any space indoors.
