Calathea Orbifolia is a gem amongst foliage plants. This hard to find Calathea has broad bright green leaves, delicately striped with silvery-blue patterning that looks almost metallic. Elegant and understated, this Calathea is prized for its round leaves which grow quite wide as the plant matures.
Calathea is a genus of plants belonging to the family Marantaceae. There are several dozen species in this genus. Native to the tropical Americas, many of the species are popular as pot plants due to their decorative leaves and, in some species, colorful inflorescences. They are commonly called calatheas or (like their relatives) prayer plants.
