Calathea orbifolia - 'Peacock plant' (S)
The Calathea orbifolia has broad appeal as a true statement plan and is highly sought after due to the exquisite beauty of its large, round foliage. It is one of the larger Calathea varieties, with their silver-striped oval leaves growing up to three feet across. Their attractive striped pattern and full leaf density make them a stunning addition to any household.
Calatheas thrive in soil that is never dry or too soggy, but well drained. Originating from Bolivia, a tropical environment best describes their ideal climate - medium light, high humidity, and temperatures between 18c and 24c. If your home is very dry, this may put your Calathea at a disadvantage. Brighter light will encourage more striking variegation.
Keep soil moist but well drained, mist regularly.
