The stunning leaves on this house plant make the Calathea Makoayna stand out in any environment. Coming from the prayer plant family, this houseplant is known to move it’s leaves up and down at night time in a prayer-like motion!
Our Calathea Makoayna's are about 30cm in height and come complete in a cylinder ceramic pot – select from white or black. Calathea’s grow outwards, rather than upwards and usually only reach about 60cm in height.
Calathea’s may need pruned once leaves turn brown or yellow and re-potted once the roots start to come out of the base of the plastic pot. Other than that, she’s a fairly low-maintenance house plant. For best growth conditions, place your Calathea Louisae in a well-lit area, but avoid putting her in direct sunlight as this could lead to burnt leaves!
Be careful not to kill this one with kindness. Literally. If you overwater your Calathea, you may start to notice sad, drooping leaves. Ensure the top layer of the soil has dried up before replenishing, then give her a good water. Fertilize in the growing season.
Misting on the other hand, is something you can’t over-do. Calathea’s love humid environments, so misting the thick leaves would actually be greatly appreciated!
This house plant is non-toxic, so perfect for pet-owners.
