Rose Painted Calathea | 12cm | Houseplant

Calathea roseopicta Silvia


Calatheas have some of the most beautiful leaves in the whole of the plant world. Their striking patterns and shiny appearance make them truly covetable and a real conversation starter. Calatheas are one of only a few plants with coloured leaves that prefer relatively low light conditions. 

The Calathea roseopicta Silvia, also known as the Rose Painted Calathea, is a relatively new variety in the Calathea family. The beautiful leaves have pale green centres banded with splashes of delicate shades of pink and purple. The backs of the leaves are a darker reddish purple. You'll see the leaves move as light levels change throughout the day - the leaves will go up at night and down again in the morning.

Comes in a 12cm nursery pot, ceramic pot not included.
