The Calathea Ornata (Whitestar) has a beautiful pattern on the foliage that combines a feathery white and pinky hue pattern down the middle of the leaf with a green edging and a dark, purple underside. These plants create a lovely contrast within your home and make a great centrepiece. 

This plant is sold in a 14cm plastic nursery pot.

Basic Care Requirements: 

Water: Calatheas can be quite sensitive to "tap" water. Fluoridated water can cause the leaves to brown from leaf burn, we recommend filtering your water or collecting rainwater. They like to be evenly watered and kept moist but not soggy - they don't like to sit in water.⠀

Light: Loves bright indirect light. Harsh direct sun will burn the leaves and fade the colour. They can handle low light conditions as well however they won't thrive.⠀⠀⠀

Soil: A standard high-quality indoor plant mix will be fine for Calatheas.

Humidity: They love high humidity levels and a warm position. You may notice browning along the leaf tips if the humidity isn't high enough.

Fertiliser: Use a balanced fertiliser once a month during Spring and Summer. We recommend the Dyna Gro Foliage-Pro fertilizer which promotes the growth of new foliage + aids in the general wellbeing of your plant.

The Dyna Gro Pro-TeKt is a recommended supplement that encourages cellular growth and strengthening that will aid your plant in protecting itself against pests.

Both are available in our 'Plant Food' section of the website. 

Toxicity: Non-toxic.

Origin: South America⠀
