Calathea Rufibarba Velvet
Calathea Rufibarba, aka Velvet Calathea or Furry Feather Calathea, got its name from its fuzzy, fur-like underleaf texture, which is unusual in its genus. It is a tall Calathea variety with red stems and deep blue-green, elongated leaves with a dark purple underside. This plant grows upright and you may notice its leaves will close up at night and reopen in the morning.
The plant comes with a default nursery pot. The nursery pot is usually 0.5" - 1" smaller than stated to fit into the same size decorative pot. Washable Paper Planter Bags are sold separately.
As with all living things, no two plants are alike. There is some natural variation in size, shape, and characteristics. We make every effort to bring you a plant that as closely as possible matches the plant as it appears on our website, in the size you have chosen, and have a good potential to happily grow in your home.
