Description
Not all Calatheas are brightly patterened! This one is grown for its fabulous rippling foliage that brings movement and energy to your interior design. The narrow green leaves arch gently from upright stems, showing off their burgundy undersides which have the texture of soft velvet. Calathea rufibarba is an elegant tropical plant which will enjoy a warm, humid room such as a kitchen or bathroom. For a really exotic display, group it with some of its vibrant cousins for a memorable display in the conservatory. Height and spread: 60cm (24").

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

Please note: Some houseplants are toxic or harmful to pets if ingested. If you believe your pet has consumed a poisonous plant then seek veterinary attention immediately. Take a sample of the plant with you.

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.
