Shop for your Calathea
The Calathea Ornata Pinstripe is native to the rainforests of Brazil and is a tropical plant that thrives in low light and warm humid conditions indoors above 60 degrees. They are ideal for use in a humid bathroom. They prefer bright indirect light away from direct sunlight whenever possible and they can handle short periods in low light conditions. During dryer cooler temperatures they should be misted with distilled water to avoid fluoride and chlorine and kept over a small tray of water filled with pebbles so that their roots do not sit in the water. Keep the soil consistently moist but not wet and do not allow them to sit in water. During the growing season feed with a little bit of weak liquid fertilizer. When potting up your Prayer plant you need to use a loose potting medium of peat and sand that retains moisture but drains well. Shipping and handling can be very tough on live plants so please be sure to open and check your plant right away. Our plant team gives each plant a drink before they are individually shipped and wrapped so they may not need to be watered right away. We are unable to ship this plant to California due to restrictions by the California Department of Agriculture. Please be aware that if your pet is a plant chewer this plant is considered pet safe and not toxic. There are no other authorized sellers of American Plant Exchange plants. Please ensure that you order and receive an American Plant Exchange plant shipped and sold by Amazon.
