What’s a Calathea?
Calathea plants are part of the family of plants known as Marantaceae, or Maranta, which is a species of flowering plants from tropical areas such as Africa. They are famous for their colorful leaves and some with special veins. These wide leaves make them popular for areas of low light. Low light plants have broad leaves to absorb and use as much light as they can get. In nature, they are found in jungles and at the base of trees.
Prayer plant is also another popular name for Calathea due to the way the leaves move and fold throughout the day and night.
Being one of the most beautiful low-light plants, Calathea White Fusion is a rare type that has brush stroke-like coloring of greens, pinks, and vibrant white. Calathea is also one of the best non-toxic indoor plants.
