Care Information

  • Site

    Will take quite a dark spot. Good for warm kitchens and bathrooms.

  • Temperature

    Likes it warm over winter 15-16C 60F if you can. Colder conditions will cause some leaf damage try to keep it on the dry side if this happens.

  • Water

    Quite a bit, loves frequent watering over the growing season (Late spring-Early Autumn) cut back over the winter but never let it get really dry.

  • Feeding

    We find little and often works, feed every 2 weeks but at half dilution with a good liquid feed.

  • Tip

    Low humidity will cause the leaves to brown at the edges. Give it a spray in the morning to help.

Calathea rufibarba

Velvet Calathea

This product has no reviews yet.  Write a Review

The most tactile of houseplants, the leaves do really feel like the softest velvet. Not as bright as a lot of this family the leaves are a rich green on the top and a dark burgandy underneath. Long and arching form great for many interior design schemes.
