Calathea vittata displays bright green elliptical leaves with numerous sleek, white stripes. Grows in an upright, clumping habit. The common name Prayer Plant refers to the leaves, which tend to fold in at night and open up in bright daylight. So cool!
Calatheas grow best in an evenly moist, well-drained soil. Feed with a slow-release fertilizer at planting. It makes a beautiful accent for borders and containers, or is excellent as a houseplant. Protect from frost!
