This Rainforest Native Will Add Exotic Color

Like all prayer plants, the Calathea Ornata is known for its remarkable foliage. Its dark green glossy leaves are accented with pink pinstripes and a reddish purple underside. Though the Pin Stripe is not without some care requirements, it pays you back amply in beautiful color.

Native to South American rainforests, the Pin Stripe Calathea thrives when you keep it true to its natural habitat: no direct sunlight, high humidity and no exposure to cold. For best results, water regularly and keep your Pin Stripe moist, but not wet or saturated. You may want to mist the leaves twice weekly. Make sure to keep the Pin Stripe away from cold drafts and sudden temperature changes. The higher humidity in a kitchen or bath is a good spot for the plant if you’re keeping it indoors. It is possible to keep the Pin Stripe outdoors, especially on patios, porches or decks. It will add amazing hues to beds and borders.

    Gorgeous! I’m just starting my plant collection. I was hesitant to purchase plants that were being shipped. They were packaged very carefully and arrived in great condition. I’ve already placed a second order.

    I’m over the moon with my plant and this fact that I found you guys in this time. I’m obsessed w your concept and the fact that you send me a picture of MY plant. 10/10 have been recommending. However… in the shipping processes I know there will be some damage and some such but every one of my leaves were damaged. Even my brand new sprout that was so perfect in the photo. I am hoping they heal up. This is not a deal breaker I think maybe an extra layer of brown paper could even do it!!!:) I am so happy with my order.

    I ordered this as a Mother’s Day gift for my mom and she loved it. I never received a picture of the plant before it shipped (as it was stated) but my mother said the plant was beautiful and loved the card it came with. I will definitely be shopping with PlantVine again. 🙂
