About the Calathea roseopicta 'Medallion'

The Calathea roseopicta 'Medallion' is one of several varieties of Calathea roseopicta, which itself is a species within the wide-ranging Calathea genus. 

Calatheas are relatively easy to care for, but they like a little extra attention. As these plants are native to the rain forest, they need indirect light, warmth and humidity to grow well. If you're lacking humidity, you can replicate it by misting your plant once every few days with a spray bottle. 

This kind of active plant care can help you access the wellbeing benefits associated with plants, such as lower stress levels, improved mood and superior mental clarity.  

With their expansive leaves, Calatheas are excellent air-purifiers. Also known as 'prayer plants', they open their leaves in the day and close them at night. As such, we recommend Calatheas as a plant to keep in the bedroom: their peaceful leaves, oxygenating properties and humidifying capabilities will help you drift off at night and feel refreshed in the morning!
