Calathea Beauty Star 4" (Calathea ornata) is a beautiful plant with striped emerald green oblong leaves. The leaves display feathered highlights on top of the lighter green of iridescent pink and white while purple covers the underside of the leaves. As the day unfolds, so do the leaves which then close at night giving it the common name of "prayer plant" as it mimics the act of praying.
Calathea can be more challenging to keep happy and they require additional attention to maintain. They thrive in bright, indirect light with moist, well-draining soil. They prefer humidity and warmer temperatures.
