You will receive one established & healthy Calathea ornata, commonly called Pinstripe Plant, in its 4″ or 6″ nursery pot with soil. The 4″ size option averages 6″ high by 6″ wide in its nursery pot when shipped. The 6″ size option averages 10″ high by 8″ wide in its nursery pot when shipped. Calathea Ornata is a member of the Marantaceae, or Maranta family, & is sometimes called the “Pinstripe Plant”. Calathea Ornata leaves are a very dark shade of glossy green, & feature the gorgeous feather-like pinstriping for which the plant is named. The pinstriping on these plants is usually light to bright pink. The underside of Calathea Ornata’s leaves is a deep maroon, which is put on display each evening when this Prayer Plants leaves fold upward for the night. Calathea’s are truly a plant which appeal to all with their gorgeous patterning & coloration. The Ornata is a fairly easy variety to care for, & is well-suited to most homes & growers. Light Calathea’s thrive in medium to bright indirect light. As with all types of Calathea, avoid lighting extremes, such as direct sun & dark corners. Direct sunlight can burn these plants, causing Calathea’s vibrant color to fade. Calathea’s in the wild are found growing on the floors of tropical rainforests. This environment can be mimicked in the home by placing the plant in a shaded area, or a spot which receives medium to bright indirect light. Water & Soil Calathea’s like to be kept evenly moist. These plants do not like their soil to dry out, & like most all plants, can experience root rot if their soil remains too wet or soggy. Calathea Ornata should be watered once the top most layer of soil becomes dry. Amending a standard well-draining potting soil with peat moss or coco coir will help to keep your plants roots evenly moist, while the addition of perlite will ensure that proper drainage & root aeration is provided. Temperature & Humidity This plant prefers room temperatures between 65 degrees F & 75 degrees F. Temperatures shouldn’t drop below 60 degrees as this could damage the foliage. Cold, drafty areas should be avoided. Calathea Ornata prefers moderate to high humidity levels. If your home is on the drier side, misting your Calathea a few times a week will provide humidity. Calathea’s tend to be happier & healthier in areas with higher humidity, so if you have a bathroom or kitchen with bright to medium indirect light, this may be the perfect spot for your Calathea.
