About the Calathea Orbifolia

Calathea Orbifolia are a stunning, sculptural plant, with large ornamental foliage reminiscent of a fan. The leaves have pale streaks draped across them in perfect synchronicity. 

Native to Bolivia, Calathea Orbifoila are from the family Marantaceae, more commonly referred to as Prayer Plants. They grow in warm, tropical environments and shady canopies, therefore prefer bright but indirect light.

Like all Prayer Plants, this plant prefers distilled or rainwater. Browning can occur on the leaves with regular use of tap water that is high in chemicals. Try collecting rainwater, it will love it.

Your Calathea Orbifolia currently lives in a 12cm diameter nursery pot. 

They're 30cm in height from pot base to leaf tip and can reach up to 100cm in height. with the right care.

Whilst we maintain the best standard possible, plants can vary slightly from the photograph from season to season.

Care Guide

Calatheas thrive best in spaces have bright indirect sunlight. Place these plants near windows in South or West facing rooms but avoid placing them in a spot that is likely to receive prolonged intense direct light as this may scorch their leaves.

Water little and often. They prefer damp soil, but don’t enjoy being overwatered, so balance is needed.

Like all Prayer Plants, this plant prefers distilled or rainwater. Browning can occur on the tips of the leaves with regular use of tap water, particularly if the water in your area is typically hard and mineral dense.

Calatheas are considered to be non-toxic to humans and pets and are part of our Child & Pet Friendly Collection.

Your Calathea Orbifolia - Prayer Plant can reach a height 100cm with time and the right care and attention.
