Calathea rufibarba 'Elgergrass'
Toxic to pets
The Calathea is native in Central and South America. The plant has the ability of pulling up its leaves at night.
A layer of lukewarm (tap) water for the roots and a light position is all this plant needs. It is best to change the water every two weeks. Throw away the old water, rinse the glass and the roots, and then pour new water into the glass. Make sure that only the roots are submerged and not the stem!
