Calathea Warscewiczii

$35

Calathea Warscewiczii, also known as Calathea Jungle Velvet, has decorative, dark green banding throughout the leaves and purple undersides, and take their colloquial namesake from the fuzzy, velvet like texture of their leaves, especially evident in the formation of new growth. It grows up to 0.5 to 1 meters high, by 0.5 to 1 meters wide, with patterned lanceoate leaves, and white cone-like inflorescences that fade to yellow or pink. This plant grows upright and you may notice it's leaves will close up at night and reopen in the morning.

They do not need to see the sun directly. But filtered sunlight through glass is fine. Keep them away from intense direct sun.
They thrive in medium to bright light, but can tolerate low light. A good medium-light place in your home would be in the middle of a room that has a regular size window. They can be placed anywhere between the middle of the room and the window.
Allow the soil to dry out halfway before watering. Typically when you see the surface of the soil is dry, it's safe to give them a water.
They like a high humidity environment, give them a mist regularly. Alternatively, you can put them around a humidifier. It doesn't mean they'll die if they don't get enough humidity, they may get some crunch edges or yellow rims if they don't have enough humidity but will survive.
Keep guarded from direct sun and mist periodically to increase humidity around the plant and keep its leaves lush. Set on a pebble tray to add extra humidity and keep leaves from crisping.
The plant comes with a default nursery pot. Washable Paper Planter Bags are sold separately.
