The Calathea Medallion has some of the most impressive foliage there is. Its leaves appear as though painted with contrasting greens, pinks & a deep purple underneath. The distinct pattern is copied on each large medallion shaped leaf, with perfect exactitude. This plant is sure to be an eye-catching centrepiece.
Like all Calathea, it is part of the Prayer plant family, and native to Brazil. Being a tropical plant, it loves humidity and a warm environment. Prayer plants will close up their leaves at night, only to open them again in the morning, a truly magical act.
This plant enjoys a consistent water schedule and prefers not to dry out too much, regular care is advised to get the best out of your Calathea Medallion.
Requires bright light to thrive. It can also tolerate slightly low light but will flourish better in a bright space.
Water little and often. Avoid letting the soil dry out completely. On average, aim for once a week. We advise testing the moisture levels of the soil with your finger before you water, this will help prevent over-watering.
All Calathea plants prefer to be watered with filtered or rainwater. Browning can occur on the leaf tips with regular use of tap water that is high in chemicals.
