The red-pink color palette of this fascinating prayer plant captivates enthusiasts from every corner of the world. And even its fussy nature fails to undermine the allure of the tropical queen.
Calathea naturally grows in the Brazilian rainforest, under the shade of tropical trees. Its wide foliage strikes with a mixture of green and pink colors. The reverse side of the leaves is painted in deep pink, and in the evenings, when this queen folds the leaves, the whole look gets a burgundy hue. The leaves themselves can reach 30 inches (70cm) tall.
