Also known as the pinstripe calathea, calathea ornata has dark leaves with beautiful hot pink stripes making its foliage strikingly eye catching. Flowers infrequently with minimal flowers. Calathea prefer higher humidity and it is suggested to keep close to a humidifier or provide supplemental misting multiple times a day.
Provide bright to medium indirect light, northern and eastern exposure. Do not place in direct light or the leaves can burn. Keep evenly moist but do not let sit in excess water. Do not let calathea dry out or they will be at risk to browning edges and die off. Can be potted in an all purpose potting soil with perlite. When roots fill the pot, repot into one pot size larger.
