The Calathea Ornata or 'Pinstripe' calathea is one of the most famous of the 'prayer plants' varieties and is a popular choice with plant collectors. The large leaves have white and pink lines and will point straight up in the air at night. It is a very striking plant and a 'must' for any calathea collection.
Calathea Ornata are easy to grow, but require good humidity to thrive. Without adequate humidity the leaves tend to get brunch and crunchy, so consider placing this plant in a humid location, or on a tray of pebbles with water. Regular misting will also help keep the leaves looking healthy.
