This striking plant is known for its vibrant leaves, which come in a variety of colors and patterns. Not only is it eye-catching, but its also relatively easy to care for. In this article, well give you all the information you need to get started with Ornata Calathea care.

Non-Toxic: Calathea plants are generally non-toxic to humans and pets, making them a safe choice for households with animals or small children
Light: They prefer bright, indirect light. Avoid direct sunlight, as it can scorch the leaves. Calathea plants thrive in medium to low light conditions, making them excellent choices for indoor spaces with limited light. Watering: Keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. They prefer well-draining soil and are sensitive to both overwatering and underwatering. Humidity: Calathea plants appreciate higher humidity levels. Regular misting or using a pebble tray with water can help increase humidity around the plant. Temperature: They prefer warm temperatures between 65-80°F (18-27°C) and are sensitive to cold drafts. Maintenance: Pruning: Trim away any brown or yellowing leaves to maintain the plant's appearance and health. Cleaning: Wiping the leaves gently with a damp cloth helps remove dust and keeps the foliage looking vibrant. Repotting: Repot every couple of years to refresh the soil and provide space for growth.
Different Cultivars: There's a wide variety of Calathea cultivars available, each with its unique leaf patterns and colors. Some popular varieties include Calathea ornata (with pink stripes), Calathea medallion (with intricate patterns), Calathea lancifolia (also known as Rattlesnake plant), and Calathea zebrina (with zebra-like stripes). Harder to find Calatheas, such as the White Fusion are in high demand with collectors due to their striking white/green variegated leaves.
Calathea plants are prized for their decorative foliage and unique leaf movements, making them highly sought after by indoor plant enthusiasts. While they require a bit of attention to watering and humidity, their stunning appearance and interesting behavior make them a captivating addition to any indoor space.
