A variety of Calathea ornata, the Calathea ‘Beauty Star’ has elegantly shaped green leaves that are stripped in pink, white, and silver. These leaves are longer and thinner than traditional ornata. The underside of each leaf exhibits a deep purple.
Calathea are great air purifying plants.
These plants are non-toxic and pet friendly.
Plant Diameter: 6"
Light: Bright, indirect light. These babies thrive in a well-lit room where they are not exposed directly to the sun’s rays.
Water: Diluted water every 3-4 days. These tropical plants like to stay moist but do not want to soak. Therefore, we recommend checking that the top soil is dry every 3-4 days. When watering, add one cup of water to the plant and let it drain completely so it does not sit in water.
Misting: Frequent. These tropical plants enjoy humidity. You can mist them as often as you like to offer a more humid environment.
Fertilizer: Once a month. Add 1:1:1 fertilizer to the water once a month to give a boost of nutrients.
