Calathea/Prayer Plant Pinstripe

Calathea plants are known for their foliage, which is characterized by intricate patterns, vibrant colours, and unique textures. One of the most interesting features of Calathea plants is their interactive behaviour. Their leaves rhythmically open and close in response to daylight changes, adding a dynamic and lively element to your home or office environment.

Calathea Pinstripe, scientifically known as Calathea ornata, is a captivating plant with elegant pink stripes that contrast against its deep green leaves. With its unique beauty and moderate care needs, Calathea Pinstripe is a popular choice for plant enthusiasts looking to add a touch of sophistication to any indoor space.

Lighting: Place in bright, indirect light, shielded from direct sunlight to prevent leaf damage.

Watering: Water moderately, allowing the top inch of soil to dry out between waterings to prevent root rot. You can stick your finger into the soil to check its moisture level or use our moisture meter to take the guesswork out.

Soil: Use a well-draining potting mix like our Fafard potting soil when repotting.

Temperature & Humidity: Maintain a warm, humid environment with temperatures between 18°C to 27°C and humidity levels around 50% to 70% to mimic its native tropical habitat.

Fertilization: Feed with a balanced, diluted liquid fertilizer monthly during the spring and summer growing season. Reduce to 8 weeks in fall and winter.
