Calathea rufibarba

Unit price per

Our absolute favorite Calathea, and easiest to care for. They are known for their extremely soft velvety foliage and for their photonastic movements. During the day, their leaves are horizontal to photosynthesize and at night, their leaves close up vertically.


We recommend watering every 5-7 days or whenever the first 1-2" of soil goes dry. Calathea do not like to go very dry! In terms of lighting they need to be in strictly filtered light so no direct sun during the day. When re-potting use an all purpose soil medium.

All of our plants are ethically sourced from certified U.S. nurseries. We strongly condemn the poaching of plants or wild collection.
