Calathea roseopicta 'Rosy' is true to its name, with gorgeous, pink centred leaves, bordered with a deep, dark green that offsets and compliments as only nature knows how. A truly beautiful Calathea.
As with most variegated plants, Calathea needs plenty of diffused light. Direct sunlight will cause the leaves to fade and lose their markings. They can tolerate some degree of shade, but the more indirect light, the finer the foliage.
Calathea 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.
Prefers warm to high temperatures, ideally between 18-23°C, but can cope with as low as 15°C. Avoid draughts and ensure the plant has reasonable ventilation.
High humidity levels are a must. Mist frequently to improve humidity conditions and pop it near the shower from time to time to give it an extra boost.
Pot size 11cm

**** All our plants are sent out via Royal Mail first class Mon - Thur, rarely do we lose parcels in the post but recently we have had a few customers contact us saying they have not received items. So to cover us and you if your item is “ lost in the post “ I will provide you with a reference number and you will need to do an online claim through Royal Mail as your item will be covered, we can not do this for you as they will only pay the full amount to the customer with a copy of their proof of purchase ( which is a simple screenshot/ copy or your online sale) This usually takes a few days for them to process and investigate.
Alternatively, I can send your item out 1st class signed for, this will be an additional cost to you so please contact me after purchasing your plant if you would prefer this option.
All our plants are sent Royal Mail 1st Class
Pots are usually sent 2nd class but if you order both they will be dispatched 1st class.
