This elegant & silvery calathea has an almost lilac underside of its leaves and striped foliage. It needs a bright indirect light, and water whenever the top layer of soil feels dry. We recommend misting & watering with filtered or distilled water, as calatheas are sensitive to the trace amounts of chlorine in tap water. 4" plants best for a 5" pot with drainage. 6" plants best for a 7" pot with drainage. Standard potting soil is recommended.
