Calathea is photographed in the Charlie pot. The package contains a plant in a plastic pot.


About the plant:
Calathea or calathea comes from the tropical regions of South and Central America and belongs to bushy plants with thin stems and relatively wide and large leaves. In the rainforest, it forms a dense undergrowth, most often in the shade of tall trees. Calathea together with the genera Marantha, Ctenanthe and Stromanthe form a very similar group of so-called praying mantises plants ( prayer plants in English ). They are called so because they always begin to straighten their leaves towards evening, which can resemble hands folded in prayer. In the morning, they delight and open their leaves again. Kalateas are distinguished from other praying mantises by the fact that their leaves grow curled into cones.

Calathea medallion has round oval leaves with a variegated green tinge that changes continuously as the leaf ages.

The plant needs enough diffused light for healthy growth. Avoid direct sunlight, which could burn the leaves. The ideal site is the north and east side near the windows or the west side with fading weak sunlight.

Water with lukewarm water. The substrate should never dry out completely, but we pay attention to overflowing.

vzduch Humidity

The plant requires increased air humidity, so we often mist its leaves or place the flowerpot on a bowl of water and pebbles.

mnozeni Propagation

We can propagate the plant by dividing the bunches, for example during transplanting, when we separate a young and mature plant from the mother plant.
