Calathea rufibarba "Blue grass"
The Calathea "Bluegrass" has vivid elongated leaves, coloured a bluey-green, held by upright stalks. As it matures, this plant's elegant foliage begins to cascade bountifully over its pot.
Calathea rufibarbas are sometimes called the 'living plant' because their leaves move throughout the course of the day! During the evening, the plant folds its leaves into an upright position and opens them the next day, working to its own circadian rhythm. These stunning plants are also amazing air-purifiers, so you can enjoy the benefits of clean air in your home all day long.
How to care for your Calathea rufibarba 'Bluegrass' :
A rainforest-dweller, your plant will thrive in a humid environment with filtered light. Keep out of direct sunlight and make sure to mist your plants leaves to ensure it's getting enough moisture. During waterings, check that the top layer of soil is dry but that the lower soil is kept lightly moist.
If you're looking for a gorgeous plant that will also rid pollution from the air, this is your match, as Calatheas make great air-purifiers!
