Goeppertia rufibarba Elgergrass
Toxic to pets
Although the Calathea family has beautiful varieties, these are not the easiest plants to take care of.
The Calathea comes from the tropical jungle of South America, where the plant takes shelter under large plants and trees. This makes the alluring plant sensitive to direct sunlight, so it's best to position it in partial shade. A dark corner or bathroom is a favourite spot for the Calathea.
The Calathea is very demanding when it comes to watering. In summer, twice a week is enough, and in winter, once a week. The leaves of the Calathea will droop when it is very thirsty.
For a super happy Calathea, it is best to spray the plant with a plant sprayer regularly.
