The Calathea Maui Queen is a stunning type of a Calathea. They have a lovely white feathery pattern in the centre of the leaves and a dark purple underside. They are part of the prayer plant family, meaning their leaves fold up at night. like praying hands, then fold back down in the morning to catch the sun. They are also great at purifying the air!
Where do I come from?
Calathea plants in general are native to the tropical regions of Central and South America.
Calatheas prefers bright indirect light to partial shade, with no prolonged exposure to direct sun.
They need to be watered regularly and don’t like to dry out between waterings, so keep soil slightly moist.
They love humidity so place it in a watered pebbled tray or place containers of water around your plants which can increase the moisture in the air. It will also benefit from regular misting.
The bathroom can also be a great spot.
Am I pet friendly?
For any pet parents out there - this houseplant is non-toxic.
What size am I?
I come in a 12cm pot.
