Calathea Vittata has striking white streaks on its green spear-shaped foliage. This will bring color and texture to any low-light corner of your home. Calathea leaves move throughout the day, it can be enjoyable to see the new positions every morning!

Bright green and white herringbone patterns on the tops of the leaves are what will draw your eye to this beautiful plant. One of the more sophisticated members of the Prayer Plant family but also one of the easiest to grow. This indoor plant prefers medium to bright indirect light and will adjust its leaves as the light level changes during the day.

Calathea vittata makes a good desk plant in the office, and because it moves and changes position during the day, it's almost like having a buddy in the office. It does like high humidity, so it's wise to occasionally mist the plant with clean, room temperature water.

For those that don't know, Calathea vittata is a member of the Prayer Plant Family of tropical plants. Prayer plants have the ability to fold up their leaves at dusk. The leaves unfold in the morning as the light level begins to rise. This effect gives the plant the look of praying hands.

Calathea plants are very sensitive to water quality. We recommend watering with spring water. The soil should never remain soggy. Watering calatheas from the bottom is often helpful. This is accomplished by submerging the pot in an inch or two of water and allowing the soil to soak up the water. This allows the plant to be watered but does not soak the crown of the plant.
