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 that are green on top and purple on the bottom, the leaves and stem are covered with hairs. From May to August, white-green flowers may appear on the stems or near the leaves of the plant.
