This elegant, exotic houseplant is a great way to add some colour and unexpected texture to any room. The leaves are long, slender and glossy with an unusual shape that folds up like hands in prayer at night. The undersides of the leaves are purple and feel like fuzzy velvet. Calathea Rufibarba makes a wonderful gift for the true plant lover.
Also Known as Prayer Plant, Velvet Calathea, Calathea Rufibarba, furry feather calathea
Origin: South America /Tropical America
Temperature:Room to warmer temperatures. Try to keep away from drafts.
Humidity: This is a tropical plant used to the floor of the Brazilian rainforest so thrives with lots of humidity. Bunch together with other plants or use a diffuser to create the perfect environment.
Light: Moderate - bright indirect light. As with most Calatheas, too much sunlight will cause it to lose its intricate patterns.
Watering:Keep soil moist but not soggy at all times. Do not allow it to dry out between watering. Give it a small water frequently.
Fertiliser:Feed every month with a general houseplant fertiliser.
