Calathea - White Star


Calatheas are among the most beautiful tropical plants you can add to an indoor collection with a wide variety of colours and patterns available. With paint like white and pink stripes on the leaves, this calathea is a must for any plant lover. Calatheas perform a wonderful dance each day as the leaves close up in the evening and unfurl each morning - a movement which lets you appreciate the red underside of the leaves in the evening and the unique leaf patterns during the day.

Partial Sun: Plants that like this type of light are mostly the type of plants that grow on the forest floor, where they are somewhat protected against direct sunlight during some hours of the day. This is also a very normal light situation for many windows, usually with a west- or east- facing window with around 4 hours of direct light each day. This could also be a spot further away from a very sunny window.
