Calathea is a special, highly-decorative houseplant with colourful, variegated foliage. Calathea is a houseplant that really purifies the air, so it is a true eye-catcher in every interior that also makes a contribution to a better and healthier indoor climate.
Calathea is referred to as a shade plant, since in nature it grows in the densely vegetated tropical rainforests of South America. For this reason the plant may not be placed in the direct sun: it prefers a semi-shaded spot at a temperature of between 16 and 27 °C.
Calathea is a marvellous decorative plant: a large Calathea will thrive in the hall, an office or a workplace at home. However, you must put Calathea in a draught-free, light spot in the shade or semi shade. Make sure that the plant never stands in the sun.
