Calathea orbifolia is a beautiful and trendy houseplant highly sought after due to the beauty of its large, round leaves and its air-purifying qualities. This beautiful foliage is subtly striped with pale silver-green markings and like other Calatheas, is non-toxic, making it a great plant for pet owners.
Calathea orbifolia loves well-draining soil that never gets dry or soggy, medium light and high humidity. A good watering policy for most Calatheas is "a little but often". It thrives at temperatures of 65°F (18°C) to 75ºF (24ºC). Direct sunlight will cause the leaves to fade and lose their markings so shade or indirect sunlight is preferred to keep your plant healthy.
