40-50cm Calathea 'Whitestar' | Prayer Plant | 14cm Pot
Calathea 'Whitestar' | Prayer Plant | 14cm Pot | By Plant Theory
Calatheas are among the most beautiful tropical plants you can add to an indoor collection with a wide variety of colours and patterns available. As tropical plants, they can be a little fussy over their care but getting a few things right from the start will set you up for success. This Calathea Whitestar is a stunning variety with large paddle-shaped leaves with white brushstrokes covering the green leaves. The undersides of the leaves provide further interest with a deep contrasting shade of red. The plant will grow best in warm, humid and well-lit conditions with the temperature being a key element. Position your Calathea in a room with lots of bright but indirect light that won't experience too many extreme temperature changes. These plants also have the common name of 'Prayer Plant' for the lovely reason that at night the leaves will close and open again during the day; this feature ensures you get a great view of both the red underside and white top of the leaves.
A grouping of potted Calatheas can look stunning with their mix of colours and patterns.
