Calathea Leopardina


About This Plant 

The Leopardina is a plant from the Calathea genus and originates from the Brazilian Rainforest.  Like the rest of its Calathea friends it has distinctive pattern leaves which in this case are a beautiful radiant green.  

Likes 

Being from the rainforest I like a warm humid environment (but keep me away from the radiator) and can handle bright indirect light to medium light.

Dislikes 

Keep me away from the window especially if its south facing, I also don't like the cold so if possible keep me in a spot that's between 18-25 degrees celsius.  Oh and I almost forgot I dont like drafts 

Care

My soil likes to be wet but not waterlogged, check me every week and if the top inch is dry to touch its time for a watering.  I like to be fertilised during the growing season which is Spring right through until the end of summer

Pet Friendly

Don't worry about it.

Size 

Comes in a 12cm diameter pot and I'm roughly 40cm high from the the bottom of my pot to the tops of my leaves.
