Product description

Calathea Ornata:

Calathea ornata, commonly known as the Pinstripe Plant or Prayer Plant, is a captivating tropical houseplant renowned for its visually stunning foliage. Sporting dark green leaves adorned with pink stripes, the plant's intricate pinstripe pattern adds a touch of elegance. Typically reaching a moderate size, Calathea ornata thrives in bright, indirect light and requires consistently moist but not waterlogged soil. Its preference for high humidity makes it well-suited for environments with increased moisture levels. With a unique behavior, the leaves of the Prayer Plant fold in the evening, resembling hands in prayer, and open again in the morning. Careful attention to factors like temperature, soil type, and regular misting helps maintain the health and vibrancy of this striking indoor plant.Here are some tips on how to care for a Calathea ornata:

  1. Light: Place your Calathea ornata in bright, indirect light. Avoid direct sunlight, as it can lead to leaf burn. It can tolerate lower light conditions, but its color and pattern may not be as vibrant.

  2. Watering: Keep the soil consistently moist but not soggy. Water when the top inch of the soil feels dry. Use room-temperature water to avoid shocking the plant. Ensure proper drainage to prevent root rot.

  3. Humidity: Maintain high humidity levels. Mist the leaves regularly or place a humidifier nearby. Grouping plants together can also create a more humid microclimate.

  4. Temperature: Keep the room temperature between  (18-29°C). Protect the plant from drafts and sudden temperature fluctuations, as it prefers stable conditions.

  5. Soil: Use a well-draining, peat-based soil mix. A mix designed for orchids or African violets can work well. Repotting every 1-2 years or when the plant outgrows its container is advisable.

  6. Fertilization: Feed with a balanced liquid fertilizer every 2-4 weeks during the growing season (spring and summer). Reduce or stop fertilizing in the fall and winter when the plant's growth slows down.

  7. Pruning: Remove yellow or damaged leaves regularly. Trim brown edges with clean scissors. Regular pruning helps maintain the plant's appearance and health.

  8. Behavior: Calathea ornata exhibits a unique behavior of "praying" or closing its leaves in the evening and reopening them in the morning. This is a normal response to changes in light and should not be a cause for concern.

  9. Pests: Keep an eye out for common pests like spider mites and scale. Wipe the leaves with a damp cloth to remove dust and discourage pests.

  10. Troubleshooting: If the edges of the leaves turn brown, it may indicate low humidity. Browning can also result from overwatering or using water with high mineral content. Adjust care accordingly.
