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 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. Kalateas are distinguished from other praying mantises by the fact that their leaves grow curled into cones.
Calathea White Fusion (sometimes also white tiger = white tiger) is a rare species of calathea , which is characterized by green-white variegation of wavy leaves. Due to the light conditions, a hint of purple may appear on the leaves. This plant is well aware of its exotic origin and will appreciate extra care from you.
