Calathea rufibarba 'Elgergrass'
The striking Calathea 'Elgergrass' will add vibrancy to your home with its contrasting green and purple ribbed-edged leaves. The Calathea rufibarba 'Elgergrass' is also an amazing air-purifier, which means it filters pollutants in the air and expels fresh oxygen!
These wonder plants even take themselves to bed every night - their leaves spread open in the morning to catch the light, and in the evening they close in an upwards motion. If you listen out, you may hear the leaves rustling throughout the day.
How to care for your Calathea Elgergrass:
Find your plant a partially shaded spot away from a window, as direct sunlight will scorch its leaves and could damage its growth and development. Calathea Elgergrass plants come from the tropics of South America so will require a humid environment. Mist your plant regularly or place a bowl of water near it to maintain humidity levels. Water once the top of the soil begins to dry out - little and often is a good watering policy (once or twice a week).
