This is our favourite variety of the calathea family, calathea orbifolia has large, rounded leaves in a light green colour with uniform silvery white stripes or markings. When mature, it grows up to 50cm in height and thickens up to make a gorgeous houseplant plant, particularly for those not so bright spots in the house.
Calathea orbifolia does not like to be overwatered, so keep watering at a moderate level, best described as being on the dryer side of wet.
The plant you are buying has approx 3 leaves and measures approx 11 cm in height from soil level and 18 cm across.
The plant will be shipped bare rooted, wrapped in sphagnum moss (except WA), surrounded in bubble wrap and taped securely to minimise movement during transit. Please note that some damage can occur during transit on occasions, despite our best efforts to package our plants ready for travel. We hope you understand if that does by chance occur.
For WA, NT and Tas customers, an additional fee of $10 per order is applicable due to the requirements associated with quarantine compliance, including chemical treatment. Separate and additional costs are also charged by respective Departments of Biosecurity in WA, Tas and NT to inspect these plants upon their arrival. For more information on this, please check out the information on the FAQ section on this website and/or contact us direct.
