Calatheas are known for their bold patterned foliage. These eye-catching plants has The leaves of most Calathea varieties fold up slightly during the night time, revealing the often colorful undersides of their striking leaves.
Just like with any Calathea plant, the Calathea Vittata does not like direct sunlight. The rays from the sun can scorch their leaves causing burning and brown crsping. Instead opt for a spot where the plant is protected from the sun and where it can receive medium light. They can tolerate lower lighting conditions but be aware they are not known as low light houseplants and may need something a little brighter.
Calathea Vittata need to be watered regularly and not allowed to dry out between waterings. Simply stick your fingers in the top two inches of soil and as you feel is starting to dry give your plant a drink.
Safe for pets.
