Calathea warscewiczii is a semi-shaded, small, perennial plant that grows 2 to 5 ft tall and is native to Costa Rica and Nicaragua. It produces off-white to white flowers, each flower turns yellowish, then blushes to pink making this plant very ornamental. It is grown in USDA zones 9-11 and will thrive in a warm, humid environment and average indoor temperatures.

This plant prefers moderate water, so when watering make sure to give it a good soak and allow the soil to dry in between waterings. It loves humid environments, so misting it twice a week can do wonders for increasing the humidity.

In colder climates, Calathea warscewiczii can be grown in a pot. To ensure that it survives the cold seasons, make sure to keep it in an area with indirect sunlight. Cold temperatures and direct sunlight can be detrimental to the foliage. Regularly monitor the plant and make sure to remove any dead or damaged leaves to help keep it healthy during winter.
