An attractive plant with bright green leaves with white stripping, Calathea Vittata is an easy plant to identify and a popular house choice.
Hailing from South America, where humidity is high, this plant thrives best in homes with higher temperatures and moist air. This can be a difficult plant to grow as it demands moist soil and humidity to flourish. They grow anywhere from 10 - 15 inches tall (0.25 - 0.38 m) with the proper amount of sunlight.
One of the few plants that are able to “move”, this Calathea will raise and lower its leaves to reach optimal sunlight. Placing this plant in a sunny room will allow it to “dance” and ensure that you’ll have a healthy plant. The Calathea is also quite picky about its roots and does not like them handled. This can make replotting a bit difficult, but your plant will thrive with some new soil and as little root disturbance as possible!
