Product Description 

Calatheas belong to a genus of neotropical rhizomatous herbaceous perennial plants, known for their striking foliage patterns and unique leaf movements. These plants are native to the tropical regions of the Americas, primarily found in Central and South America.

 Water: Water every 1-2 weeks, allowing soil to dry out half way down between waterings. Expect to water more often in brighter light and less often in lower light.

Light: As with most variegated plants, Calathea need plenty of diffused light. Direct sunlight will cause the leaves to fade and lose their markings. They can tolerate some degree of shade, but the more indirect light, the finer the foliage.

Basic Care: Calatheas need specific care in order to thrive. They need a consistently warm spot and bright but indirect light – keep them out of direct sunshine. Keep the soil moist from spring to autumn, and provide some humidity by misting the leaves daily or standing on a tray of moist pebbles.

One remarkable characteristic of Calatheas is their ability to move their leaves in response to changes in light and darkness. This phenomenon, known as nyctinasty, involves the leaves opening and closing in a rhythmic pattern over the course of the day. This movement is thought to help the plant optimize its exposure to sunlight and protect itself from excessive moisture loss during the night. Another noteworthy aspect of Calatheas is their reputation as pet-friendly plants. While many houseplants can be toxic to pets if ingested, Calatheas are generally considered safe for cats, dogs, and other pets. However, it's always wise to monitor pets around plants and to consult with a veterinarian if you have any concerns about potential toxicity.
