Calathea Medallion is a classic variety with large dark green leaves, banded with silver and emerald green. The backs of the leaves are a deep red-purple which adds to its tropical charm.
Calathea need plenty of diffused light however direct sunlight will cause the leaves to fade and lose their markings. They can tolerate some degree of shade, but the better the light conditions, the more you will be rewarded by fine foliage. Experiment in your home to find the perfect spot for your plant.
Calathea's must be kept in damp soil at all times, but definitely do not allow the plant to sit in water or in very wet soil. Think little and often as a watering policy.
This plant is cat and dog friendly and is an air purifier.
