Very unique plant with a distinctive wavy leaf texture and colorful leaf colors. The leaves have a green spotted pattern on top and purple undersides. Many calathea varieties are a little finicky, but lancifolia is one of the most vigorous and easy to grow.
Like many of the 'prayer plants', the leaves may move during the course of the day in response to changing light conditions.
