Rosa | Calathea | Little Princess


Frida | Calathea Ornata | Pink Pinstripe Plant



This plant really is extraordinary, her perfect pink pinstripes against the dark green background make her seriously unique, bound to impress even the most seasoned plant addict!



Calatheas are fantastic plants, my favourite part of them is that they close up their leaves at night - earning them the nickname 'prayer plant' as they can look like they're praying.   They're pretty easy going to look after, they don't like to sit in lots of water and like a nice spot with indirect sunlight.



Her plastic growing pot is 15cm and so would fit perfectly in one of our 17cm, 18cm or 19cm pots. 


The good news for pet owners is that the Calathea is non-toxic to pets!  Just keep out of reach if you have any fluffy friends who might be partial to a nibble.



All of the houseplants in my shop are named after an inspiring woman. This time, it's Rosa Parks, one of the founding members of the civil rights movement in the US.


Native to South America, Calatheas come in a range of shapes, sizes and colours and are a lovely house plant to keep.


They're relatively easy to care for but can be a little fussy to keep an eye on your plant as she settles in.  She likes bright, indirect sunlight and regular watering.  


Never let her sit in water though and let the top few inches of soil dry out before watering and, like many plants, she needs less water in Winter.


Each plant comes with a beautiful printed care card so you'll never be stumped for how to look after it!
