Sometimes known as the calathea zebra plant, due to its striped leaf patterning, which can grow up 2 feet long! Native to Brazil, these magnificent plants love a tropical, humid environment just like most other calatheas. The leaves emerge chartreuse and then darken for a very lemon lime effect. Not only are the leaves on these beauties eye-catching, but they also have a soft velvet feel!
With proper care, you can soon have a little calathea tree in your home. Plant gets up to 3 feet tall and 3 feet wide.
Fertilize during the growing season to promote quick and healthy growth.
