Calathea Freddie Overview
Goeppertia concinna is a tender evergreen perennial frequently grown as a houseplant because of its striking foliage. It forms clumps of bright green leaves with dark-green lines of patterning. Flowering is infrequent in cultivation - when flowers appear, they are small and yellow. It likes a position in bright but indirect sunlight, that is warm and sheltered, and the soil needs to be kept moist - but not wet. Water when the surface of the soil has begun to dry out. Mist regularly and/or place the pot on a tray of dampened shingle. Feed with a weak solution of fertilizer every 2 weeks during the growing season. Keep the leaves free from dust by wiping with a damp cloth. This plant has previously been named Calathea concinna, Maranta concinna and Maranta leopardina and is also sometimes sold under the names Zebra Plant, Prayer Plant or Calathea Freddie, among other names.
