Calathea sanderiana 'pinstripe Calathea'...Everybody needs this beauty in their collection. This Calathea has the most incredible glossy foliage. The leaves are a deep purple colour with pink pinstripes. A really special plant!
Care: Getting the light right for your Calathea may be a little challenging you might have to experiment a little to find the perfect spot. They can tolerate light shade but I find they prefer more of brighter conditions. Direct sun will burn and fade your leaves, they will also start to curl inwards if too hot or too cold. Keep the soil moist at all times but not soggy. Providing your Calathea with a good level of humidity can really help them flourish also help stop their tips from going brown and crispy! You can help raise the humidity by misting regularly, placing your plants on a moist pebbles tray also grouping your plants closer together or even a humidifier.
Size: Pot Diameter 14cm - Total height is approximately 50cm
Toxicity: Nontoxic to humans and pets
Difficulty: Easy - More easy indoor plants
Feeding: General, the majority of houseplants should be fed every 2nd watering during the growing season (Spring and Summer), for me, it's about which every 14 days. In autumn and winter, I feed less, as indoor plants will require fewer nutrients.
