Rose-Painted Calathea Overview

Calathea roseopicta has recently been reclassified - it is now known as Goeppertia roseopicta. This plant is an evergreen, clump-forming perennial that typically grows to around 25cm high and produces dark green leaves with a pink midrib and stripes. Leaves are often attractively-patterned but flowers are seldom produced in cultivation. It is often grown as a houseplant due to its low maintenance requirements and preference for partial shade. Also likes humidity.
