The Velvet Calathea is soft to touch, and wildly jungle-like in colour. Native to Costa Rica and Nicaraqua, your home will feel like tropical paradise with this striking, dramatic and tropical house plant in situ. The prayer plant is aptly known due to the movement of the leaves dependant on the lighting and time of day. You may even hear it move!

Houseplant & Indoor Plant Care

Prayer Plant | Jungle Velvet | Hard To Find Care Guide

Calatheas love bright, indirect sunlight in order to thrive. Plentiful Humidity and a moist, consistent soil will ensure your Calathea is happy. A Pebble Tray underneath your plant, with a little sitting water will create the perfect humidity for your beautiful plant, whilst ensuring the plant pot sits on top of the pebbles rather than submerged into the water.

    Packing is always very good, plants are always the finest quality, The only way you could improve the service, is to provide a descriptive Label with the plants, I always label my plants on arrival, it would be so better to have a nicely printed one.

    We received our plants yesterday and we were very impressed by the way they had been packed for delivery and also all the plants were in a lovely condition. The delivery arrived on time, within 3 working days of ordering and by a very polite driver. All in all a very good experience. We will be using Houseplant again. Thank you all.
