Calathea Pin Stripe (Ornata)
A beautiful tropical plant with impressive foliage, those pink stripes almost look like a painting!
The Calathea Ornata comes in a plastic nursery pot as standard. You can add on a pot of your choice if you would like one; the Calathea Ornatata works well in one of our handmade concrete pots or a Bergs Julie pot in terracotta or grey.
You should water your Calthea so that it is a little moist at all times, it will require more water in the summer, but let the top inch dry out before watering again. Coming from the jungle your Ornata will also like misting but will not like to be close to drafts or radiators that create a dry environment. Keep in a bright place without direct light, an east facing window is good, south facing definitely not. You should fertilise your Ornata regularly during its growing season. Keep moist but don't let it sit in water or it will get root rot.
Plant care instructions and tips: Place in indirect light, a east or west facing window sill is ideal.
Keep the soil of the plant moist but never soggy. Allow the top inch to dry out before watering. Never let the plant sit in water as this can lead the roots to rot.
