A wonder plant of ribbed-edged leaves and contrasting greens and purples!
The striking Calathea 'Elgergrass' are wonder plants, 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.
Calathea rufibarba 'Elgergrass' is also an amazing air-purifier, which means it filters pollutants in the air and expels fresh oxygen!
Colour has a great impact on our feelings and emotions. The purple in the Calathea Rufibarba is perceived as spiritual and intriguing.
Also known as Velvet Calathea and Fuzzy Feathers due to its fuzzy underside, it has unique dark green slim leaves with purple underneath.
