    - More Info
  • Latin Name: Calathea roseopicta Surprise Star
  • Common Name: Rose Painted Calathea
  • Characteristics: The Calathea Surprise Star is an indoor plant with some of the most bold and distinct coloured foliage of plants within the Calathea genus. The colours upon each leaf are a very well-finished black and deep pink, which form themselves in beautiful nature across the foliage. The Surprise Star, as its more commonly known, is also air-purifying, meaning it will clear the air of any harmful pollutants and unwanted toxins.
  • Plant Advice: The Surprise Star will benefit from a watering once every couple of weeks, with the main advice being to keep the soil moist as best as you can. Between waterings, you can opt to mist the plant so that the humidity levels are heightened - the plant will appreciate this. Keep the plant out of direct sunlight as this will damage the plants leaves in the long term, taking away from their attractiveness.

The Calathea Surprise Star possesses some very bold foliage colouring that shows itself off very well within an indoor setting, whether that be as part of an indoor plant display or on its own. The colour palette of the leaves includes both black and deep pink shades that form in a beautiful formation throughout each leaf. The Rose Painted Calathea, as its more commonly known, will appreciate being placed in any area other than in view of direct sunlight, as this will affect the leaves further down the line. Water the plant on a bi-weekly basis and mist the plant in the periods between this, ensuring you never allow the plant to sit in water for any length of time.

Please Note: Images are for illustrative purposes only and designed to be a representation of the item(s) being sold. Depending on seasonality, deciduous plants may be supplied in their dormant state and without leaves. Plants may also be pruned back, lower than stated heights, to encourage new growth.

Never disappointed!!

Received my plants today, brought a stromanthe at the same time, both are equally fantastic and good sized plants. Have brought other calatheas from here and will continue to grow my collection courtesy of Gardeners Dream!!
