Calathea x veitchiana Flamestar

Click to see full-size image

Very rare, striking calathea the features green leaves feathered with light green variegation. A showstopper for a shaded corner, it is simply beautiful! The rich bold green and yellow markings make this a must-have houseplant to brighten up any room. The leaves are flat by day and folded up as the day comes to an end, hence the common name Prayer Plant. This behavior is called nyctinasty, and it happens as a response to changes in the sunlight.
As with most variegated plants, Calathea need plenty of diffused light however direct sunlight will cause the leaves to fade and lose their markings. They can tolerate some degree of shade, but the better the light conditions, the more you will be rewarded by fine foliage.
Calathea must be kept in damp soil at all times, but definitely do not allow the plant to sit in water or in very wet soil. Think little and often as a watering policy.
RECOMMENDED FERTILIZERS:
SUNSHINE Robusta - Rapid Growth Booster
Tropical Allure - Smart-Release Booster
