Calathea Jungle Velvet (Warcewiczii)


Calatheas are stunning tropical plants with the most beautifully patterned leaves and this Calathea warscewiczii is not exception! Not only does it sport striking two-toned green leaves with a burgundy coloured underside, but it is also soft and velvety to touch.

The Calathea Jungle comes in a plastic nursery pot as standard. You can add on a pot of your choice if you would like one; the Calathea Jungle works very well in one of our handmade Bergs Julie terracotta pot.

Easy to care for? Moderate to tricky

Unfortunately, the Calathea family has a well-deserved reputation for being temperamental. This is due to our home conditions being so different their natural tropical habitats.

Plant care instructions and tips: Place in indirect light, a east or west facing window sill is ideal. Warscewiczii likes consistently moist, well draining soil, and bright to medium indirect light. Humidity of over 50% keeps its lovely leaves looking their best, so misting in essential! Give them warm, but not hot temperatures all year round and feed lightly through the growing season. They don’t like being disturbed, so repot infrequently.

Plant height: Approx 65cm - 75cm

Pot dimensions of standard plastic pot: 19cm (diameter) x 18cm (height)

How easy is it to care for:  Moderate to Tricky
