Also known as the Pinstripe Plant (because of the gorgeous pink patterns on its green leaves), the Calathea Ornata can be the next houseplant for you to show off. With its distinctive patterns, the Pin-Stripe Calathea definitely stands out – the pink stripes on top look like they have been painted on, which combine perfectly with the reddish-purple hues on the bottom. An extremely ornamental plant, it can be slightly fussy to care for.
This plant loves moist soil so regular waterings are needed but puddles should not be allowed to form otherwise root rot can occur. It also needs a high level of humidity to emulate its native tropical environment, using a humidifier or keeping it in the kitchen or bathroom can help with this. The Pin-Stripe Calathea is truly one of a kind and with some care, it can become a wonderful showpiece in your living space!
