We love this calathea, especially the mosaic effect on its leaves. It looks almost unreal. They can grow quite big with large foliage.

LOVING YOUR PLANT
This Calathea prefers bright, indirect light. Placing it by an east, west, or north facing window is ideal, but too much direct sunlight will burn the leaves. It can grow in partial shade.
This Calathea is very sensitive to water quality. Use distilled water, rainwater or allow your tap water to sit out overnight before using it. Keep the soil moist but don’t let it sit in water.
This plant doesn’t like cold rooms. Keep it warm, between 18-26 degrees. It also needs a moist environment with above average humidity, imitating its natural tropical climate. A way of keeping the humidity high is to group several plants together or by sitting them on a tray of pebbles and water.
Make sure to clean all leaves with a dry cloth – dust can affect its absorption of light. You can feed your plant once a month during growing season with a slow release fertiliser.
Not toxic for pets and children if eaten.
