Calathea Beauty Star
A variety of Calathea ornata, the Calathea ‘Beauty Star’ has elegantly shaped green leaves that are stripped in pink, white and silver. These leaves are longer and thinner than a traditional ornata. The underside of each leaf exhibits a deep purple.
Like all Calatheas, the ‘Beauty Star' enjoys bright, indirect light and evenly moist soil. These are not undemanding plants, and require consistency with watering and even light to thrive. This is a pet-friendly plant.
As a member of the Marantaceae family, Calathea Beauty Star is an active plant which undergoes observable nyctinasty, the process of foliage reacting to the daily light cycle. Therefore it will enjoy a position out of direct sun light with changes in the daily lighting environment.
Calathea Beauty Star thrives indoors with the correct care. Ensure your environment has high humidity with no direct sun light. Above all, this plant should be watered with soft water only, free from calcium carbonate and other minerals found in many urban water sources. Grouping Calatheas will help achieve the correct humidity along with an attentive watering routine. As a result you’ll have a healthy looking plant with no burnt edges
