INDOOR PLANT - Calathea Rufibarba in 12cm Pots
If you've collected the more 'common' indoor plants, think devils ivy, rubber plants, monstera, snake plant etc, and are looking for something a bit more intricate, delicate and a tad more challenge then let us introduce you to Calathea's! Commonly called prayer plants due to the way their leaves move during the day to capture the sunlight. At night they stand up straight.
Prayer plants, for which they're are up to 50 species of, vary from dark green velvety leaves to leaves with intricate patterns and purple undersides have some of the most stunning foliage out there! Many Calathea's require lower light than other popular plants, and with the proper care, they bring colour, geometry—and movement. We would not recommend a Calathea as a first plant but for you more experienced plant parents browse our range of beautiful Calatheas and let your Prayer Plant addiction commence!
The Calathea Rufibarba is one of the hardest Calathea's and is pretty damn stunning! It has fluffy feather shaped long green leaves with a maroon underside...almost silky and velvety to the touch. At maturity can reach top to 1 metre in height.
