About the plant:
Calathea  or calatea 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 along with genera Marantha, Ctenanthe and Stromanthe  form a very similar group of so-called praying plants  (English prayer plants ). 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. Calathea  are distinguished from other praying mantises by the fact that their leaves grow curled into cones.

Calathea rufibarba is characterized by elongated leaves of green color on top and purple color on the bottom, leaves and stem are overgrown with hairs. From May to August, white-green flowers may appear on the stems or near the leaves of the plant.

svetlo Light

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.

zalivka Watering

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.

problemy Common problems

Overwatering: Too much water can cause root rot, yellowing and leaf drop. Dry air: Due to insufficient air humidity, the leaves of the plant can start to dry from the tips and turn yellow or curl. Burn: Direct light can burn the leaves of the plant, causing dark and dry spots.
