Calathea orbifolia originate from Bolivia, where they thrive in humidity and dappled light conditions. It has big, rounded beautiful green leaves with darker green and silver stripes and is an Air purifying plant.
Like the rest of our range of Calatheas, it's leaves stay flat and open up during the day, then fold up like praying hands at night.

She likes filtered light and can even take a shadier spot, avoid keeping her in direct sunlight.
She likes moist soil, water her when the top couple of inches of soil are dry and always drain the water before sitting back into the decorative pot.
Think rainforest floor, so lots of misting her or pop her on a pebble tray. She will love a spot in the bathroom too.
She is kind to pets and humans.
