Calathea Vittata has light green elliptic stripes on the its leaves and is rather short, growing up to 60cm. Coming from tropical forests where it rains a lot, these plants need high humidity all the time.
Since they are this small in size, they are not getting any direct sunlight in the jungle so they should not be exposed to direct and too bright light. The water used for watering should be filtered or distilled because the chlorine, salts, and fluoride don’t suit Calathea Vittata well. Grouping Calatheas will help achieve the correct humidity along with an attentive watering routine.
As a member of the Marantaceae family, Calathea Vittata is an active plant which undergoes observable nyctinasty, the process of foliage reacting to the daily light cycle. Therefore, enjoying a position out of direct sun light with changes in the daily lighting environment.
Added bonus: Calathea are not poisonous which means it’s pet friendly (non toxic to cats and dogs).
