Overview

Goeppertia ornata is an attractive evergreen perennial in the Marantaceae family. It has an upright and clump-forming habit, on average not exceeding half a metre in height. Originating from Northern South America, this species is also a popular houseplant, grown for its attractive striped foliage. It likes consistent moisture, water little and regularly but do not let it sit in standing water as this can lead to root rot. It produces large, oval to egg-shaped, dark green leaves with pairs of pale pink-white striping either side of leaf midribs. Flowers rarely appear in cultivation, they are white if they do and this species generally blooms in the summer. This species was recently reclassified from the genus Calathea to Goeppertia.
