Native to the tropical jungles of Brazil the Calathea Maui thrives in humidity and medium to low light conditions. It has large green leaves with feather like patterns on top and deep purple tones underneath. A real beauty Queen to add to your urban jungle.
It’s an air purifying plant and part of the prayer plant family so will open and close its leaves from day to night. She’s a bit of a show off!
Suits our Medium Pot range.
Plant size: D12cm H40cm
She prefers medium light, direct sun will burn her pretty leaves and her colours will fade. She can also tolerate shade. Bathrooms are a great spot for Calathea's.
Best to leave her until the top few inches of soil have dried out and be careful not to over water. She likes her soil to be moist, but not too wet.
Like most tropical plants, she enjoys being misted. If the air is too dry her leaf tips will start to brown and curl.
She will not harm your cat or dog. Yippee!
