Calathea ornata for Sale Online
Calathea ornata or Pinstripe Calathea, also known as Pinstripe Prayer Plant, is a tropical house plant most well-known for its bright, intense foliage. The striking contrast of the delicate pink pinstripes against glossy dark green leaves creates an almost hand-painted effect. The unique foliage is slender and oval-shaped with dark purple undersides and is safe for cats and dogs, according to the ASPCA Plant Toxicity List.
Pinstripe Calathea does especially well in low-light areas and likes to dry slightly between watering. When you re-pot your Calathea ornata from its nursery pot, be sure to select a planter with a drainage hole. While it is tolerant of wet roots, it prefers not to be saturated. Calathea benefits from regular mistings, twice weekly, as its natural environment is high in humidity. It is 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.
Calathea ornata is a stunning statement for every home and one of the most coveted houseplants of the year.
