Calathea fucata 6"
A terrestrial member of the Marantaceae family, native to the understory of the Tropical Americas, with remarkable silver markings on the leaves. Living in the understory is beneficial to us trying to grow it in the home, as they are generally lower light plants. It's not so beneficial when you realize that the jungle floor is incredibly humid, and these plants are reliant on that humidity. The family is most commonly known for following a circadian rhythm, where they lay their leaves horizontally during the day, and point them upwards at night. The specimens we have available have just recently bloomed!
