About the Velvet Calathea

The Velvet Calathea is aptly named for its soft, furry foliage. This dreamy tactile plant is also very pleasing to the eye with its playful, zig-zag fronds. The leaves have a deep burgundy underside and a rich green surface on top. 

Like all Calatheas, it is part of the Prayer Plant, or Marantacaea family, and native to Brazil. It resides under the rainforest canopy making it a lover of diffused light and high humidity.

Your Calathea Rufibarba currently lives in a 17cm diameter nursery pot. 

They're 60cm in height from pot base to leaf tip and can reach a height of 100cm with the right care and environment.

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

 

Learn more about Calatheas and other members of the Prayer Plant family by reading our article Marantaceae: The Complete Guide to Caring for your Prayer Plants in the Clay Journal.

Care Guide

Velvet 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 Rufibarba - Velvet Calathea can reach a height 80-100cm with time and the right care and attention.
