Calatheas are a little bit fussy in their needs but well worth the trouble. This one has bright green animal-print leaves and looks great on its own or as part of a houseplant collection. Photographed here in extra large Green Copenhagen Pot. Pet friendly.
Calatheas need to be kept in light shade, away from direct sun, cold draughts or hot air from radiators. Keep the compost constantly moist but not soggy.
