Regular price Sale price $29.00

The Pinstripe Calathea, scientifically known as Calathea ornata, is a captivating tropical plant renowned for its striking foliage and unique markings. This species belongs to the Marantaceae family and is native to the rainforests of South America, particularly Brazil.

Characterized by its elongated, lance-shaped leaves, the Pinstripe Calathea boasts a mesmerizing pattern of alternating dark green stripes and light pink to white lines running along the veins of the leaf. The deep green color of the foliage provides a rich backdrop for the contrasting delicate lines, creating a visually stunning effect reminiscent of pinstriped fabric, hence its common name.

The leaves of the Pinstripe Calathea possess a distinctive quality known as "nyctinasty," which means they respond to changes in light by opening and closing. This behavior gives the plant an interactive element, as the leaves fold up at night and unfurl during the day, adding to its allure.

In addition to its aesthetic appeal, the Pinstripe Calathea is favored for its relatively low maintenance requirements, making it a popular choice among houseplant enthusiasts. However, it thrives in consistent, indirect light and prefers high humidity levels, making it well-suited for placement in bathrooms or near humidifiers. It is essential to water the plant regularly, ensuring the soil remains consistently moist but not waterlogged, as it is sensitive to both over and under-watering.

Overall, the Pinstripe Calathea is not only a visually striking addition to any indoor space but also a relatively manageable plant to care for, making it an excellent choice for both novice and experienced plant enthusiasts alike.
