Calathea Medallion

Calathea Roseopicta 'Medallion'

Regular price £18.00 £0.00

A beautiful tropical plant, the Calathea will lift the look of any room with its spectacular foliage.

You can tell I'm a medallion, because my leaves are made up of concentric patterns, rather than stripes.

The 'Medallion' variety has light and dark green patterns on the tops of the leaves and a deep purple underside. Watch its leaves open and close at dawn and dusk. Plus, it's a mighty air purifier so it'll clean up any nasties from your room too. Keep the soil moist but not overwatered and move away from direct sunlight.

Useful to know:

Origin

I come from the tropical Rainforests of South America.

Height/Growth

I can grow as tall as 60cm and I am a fairly speedy grower.

Light

I like a lot of diffused light, but direct sunlight will cause the leaves to fade and lose my precious markings. Because I grow on the canopy floor, I can tolerate shade, but I grow much better with indirect light.

Water

I like my soil to be moist, but I am also susceptible to root rot, so don't let me sit in water. Think little and often as a watering policy.

Temperature

I prefer warm to high temperatures, ideally between 18-23°C but can cope with as low as 15°C. Please keep me away from draughts!

Feeding

Apply a weak dose of a nitrogen rich foliage fertiliser once or twice a month during the growing season.

Grooming

Wipe my leaves with a damp cloth to remove dust, so that I can breathe properly.

Care

High humidity levels are a must. Stand on a wet pebble tray to improve humidity and mist frequently. Pop it in the shower from time to time to give an extra boost. 

Toxicity

Good news: I am pet friendly!

Fact

I am really good at removing toxins and impurities from the air, so I'll help you breathe more easily.
