Care Information

  • Site

    Prefers bright indirect sunlight, therefore a shady spot of a brightly lit room is perfect. 

  • Temperature

    Enjoys a warm and humid environment, therefore regularly misting is ideal to avoid browning of the leaves. Temperatures between 18-23°C are desireable but can cope with as low as 15°C.

  • Water

    A good soak once a week or when the first inch or so is dry. 

  • Feeding

    Apply liquid fertilizer monthly to promote healthy new growth. 

  • Tip

    Clean the leaves when they get dusty. This is best done with a damp cloth.

    Pop it in the shower every so often to give it an extra boost!

Calathea sanderiana

Pin Stripe Calathea

This product has no reviews yet.  Write a Review

One of the larger Calathea varieties. A glossy indoor plant with distrinctive dark green leaves with fishbone-like stripes. The stripes have pink overtones and will turn white when the plant ages. The underside of the leaf are a beautiful purple color. It will add colour the house in areas where other plants do not like to be!

As the amount of light decreases, the leaves will close. This plant therefore has a day and night rhythm which can actually be audible! This is a result of a joint between the leaf and stem which is activated by the changing light levels.

Native to South America and seen in many tropical climates such as Thailand.
