Calathea Warscewiczii is a luxuriously exotic plant that is part of the Prayer Plant family - you’ll notice its leaves folding up at night and opening again in the morning, like two hands in prayer. Its rich green leaves are decorated with lighter green stripes on top and deep purple undersides. The foliage has a soft velvety feel, which is why Calathea Warscewiczii is also known as the Jungle Velvet plant.
Originating from the tropical forests of Central and South America, these plants love a warm humid atmosphere so are ideal for the kitchen or bathroom. However, if you’re willing to mist them every couple of days, you’ll find they fit nicely in any room of the house.
Growing your Calathea from its baby stage and watching it mature over time, from a tiny leafy stem to a healthy, fully grown plant is a delight to witness.
It’s not unusual to give your plant a name… so don’t hesitate to choose one that you think suits the plant! Try naming your plant with the first name or word that you think of when you look at it - that’s how we ended up with an orchid named Clover and spider plant called Joseph.
