A tropical variety with beautiful colour

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. Native to Brasil, this Calathea has the common name of 'Eternal Flame' due to its stunning bright orange flowers. This is contrasted nicely by the dark green leaves with an underside of deep 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.

Packaging

Plant Theory has sustainability at its heart. That means that every house plant will be delivered in eco-friendly packaging that doesn't compromise on protection.

The intuitive box design is totally plastic free and optimised to keep your plants safe in transit, without unnecessary harm to the environment. The cardboard packaging is fully recyclable to deliver you a more eco-conscious product.

We believe that anyone, regardless of ability can successfully grow their own plants at home, and do so in an eco-friendly and sustainable way.

Everyone should have the chance to experience the benefits that plants bring to our lives, and we have put a lot of effort into making sure that all of our products are easy to grow, even for beginners.

Sustainability is at the heart of our ethos and we have done everything we can to ensure that all of our products are as sustainable as possible, be it our plastic free, fully recyclable packaging, GM free seeds or ethically sourced compost.

Monsteras are happiest in bright light but not direct sun as this will cause their leaves to yellow. A little way back from a window in a bright room is ideal.

Water once a week, adding in a liquid plant feed once a month through summer for an added boost to growth. Allow the water to run right through the soil and out of the drainage holes of the nursery pot, leaving the water 10 minutes or so to sink through before returning to the display pot. This can be done once a week in summer but should be reduced in winter.

Mist the leaves When temperatures in the house rise due to summer or winter heating.
