Calathea plants are part of the family of plants known as Marantaceae, native to the tropical Americas and Africa.
They are famous for their wide, green, colorful leaves. These wide leaves make them popular for areas of low light. Low light plants have broad leaves to absorb and use as much light as they can get. In nature, they are found in jungles and at the base of trees.
Calathea Amabilis, Ctenanthe Burle Marxii, or Prayer Plant is pretty laid back and loves showing off his flamboyant oval leaves. Their underside is painted burgundy velvet, while the tops dazzle in silver snake-skin.
Burle Marxii is perfect for use as an indoor pot plant or in a terrarium. It can also be used as a container plant in a shady patio or as a ground cover in a shaded tropical garden. Its brilliantly variegated vein marked foliage gives it its beauty.
It does especially well in low light areas. Named after the famous Brazilian artist and landscape designer – Roberto Burle Marxii, it truly is a piece of art that will be a great addition to any space.
Over the years, calatheas have become a very popular houseplant because their attractive leaves grab the attention of many plant owners. With so many species to chose from it has become one of the most popular houseplants to own. Calathea is familiar with the rainforest floor – meaning it loves a moist, humid environment. It’s highly sensitive to cold, drafts, and sudden temperature fluctuations. It grows best in warm, humid, and well-lit conditions, but it never does well in direct sunlight. Calathea must be kept in damp soil at all times, but definitely do not allow the plant to sit in water or in very wet soil. Think little and often as a watering policy.
