Description

Calathea rufibarba has recently been reclassified – it is now known as Goeppertia rufibarba. Velvet Calathea, Furry Feather, and Prayer Plant are all other common names for this plant. It is a tender, evergreen perennial from the Marantaceae family, frequently grown as a houseplant. The leaf edges are wavy and eye-catching! The leaves are lance-shaped and green, with flashy purple undersides and wavy edges. The leaves have fine hairs across their surface, giving a velvety texture that is soft to touch. Place in a position of bright, partial sun, in well-draining soil for optimal growth. Placement in a bathroom or kitchen is ideal, as these rooms are typically the most humid. It wants to say relatively moist, but do not allow it to sit in water. It forms clumps and produces yellow flowers from the base of the plant. This isn’t that common when it’s grown as a houseplant though, it’s more popular for the leaves.

Sunlight – While it is true that calatheas can tolerate lower lighting conditions than other tropical houseplants, they certainly need bright indirect lighting in order to thrive.

Watering – Calatheas like to be damp at all times and, unlike philodendrons, don’t enjoy drying out in-between waterings.

Plant Care – When you’re repotting your calathea plant, simply shake off the excess soil and divide the plant at the roots and stems.
