This elegant, evergreen house plant provides that fresh, leafy look in your home. Its muted silvery-green tones hide a daring secret – the underside of each leaf is velvety, maroon red creating an alluring contrast. Calathea picturata 'Argentea' is tropical perennial that enjoys a lightly shaded spot away from the scorch of direct sunlight. The exotic variegated foliage is ideal for mixing with other leafy house plants to produce an opulent jungle effect, or simply stood alone as a striking focal point. Height and spread: 50cm (20").

How to Grow
Position Calathea in a warm room away from cold draughts and radiators, with a constant temperature above 16C (60F). Average room temperatures of 18C (65F) - 24C (75F) are preferable. Calathea require a bright but lightly shaded spot, well away from the direct glare of the sun.
More Info
Water Calathea freely between spring and autumn using tepid rainwater where possible, and allowing the pot to drain well after each watering. In winter, reduce watering but do not allow the compost to completely dry out. House plants should be fed regularly between March and September when they are in active growth. Calathea appreciates a humid atmosphere - stand it on a tray filled with pebbles and water. As the water evaporates it will increase humidity around the plant.
