  • Latin Name: Calathea rufibarba 'Elgergrass'
  • Common Name: 'Elger grass'
  • Characteristics: Calathea 'Elgergrass' is a striking indoor houseplant which produce pale green narrow leaves. Most of the steam are in a vibrant shade of red and like most of the Calathea species, this plant goes to sleep every night by rolling its leaves into and upright position. These plants can grow to an impressive 80cm in height and is a air purifying plant!
  • Plant Advice: The Elgergrass plant will thrive in any well-drained, moist soil. They should be situated in a warm to hot humidity room with no direct sunlight - as this will damage the growth and development of their leaves. It is advised to repot the houseplant once every two years. If you take care of the plant, the Calathea will return the favour by converting any contaminated substances in your house into oxygen!
