Full description and specifications

Calathea Rufibarba 'Tropistar' is a tropical plant, known for its unique leaves and their texture. This plant has long and wavy leaves with a soft and velvety texture. The upper part of the leaves is dark green, shiny, while the lower part has a purple or reddish color.

Calathea Rufibarba 'Tropistar', like many other indoor plants, is known for its ability to filter the air.

Calathea is also special for another reason: its leaves close at night and open again in the morning! This is the reason why Calathea is also called "living plant". The plant owes this ability to a small "joint" between the leaves and the stem. The light moves the joints and, as a result, the leaves of the Calathea open and close - sometimes accompanied by a rustling sound.

Calathea prefers places with diffused light, but avoids direct sunlight, which can burn the leaves. This plant requires high humidity and constant watering, but it does not like excess water. Because this plant enjoys a humid atmosphere, it is a good choice for bathrooms or other areas with high humidity.

Calathea is a sensitive plant that requires careful care to thrive. However, its unique and beautiful leaves are the reward for all the efforts made.
Note: Calathea is a sensitive plant to temperature differences. Therefore, it is possible to receive these plants with some defects on the leaves, but these do not affect the viability of the plant.
