About Me

Embrace the architectural wonder of the Calathea orbifolia, also known as the Round-Leaf Prayer Plant. This captivating houseplant features stunning, near-circular leaves with a vibrant light green base accented by silvery-green stripes. The leaves boast a satisfyingly wavy edge, and their size makes them a true statement piece in any room.

A true conversation starter, the Calathea orbifolia adds a touch of the tropics and bold foliage to your indoor jungle. Nighttime brings another layer of intrigue, as the leaves gracefully rise and close, mimicking prayer hands.

Plant Height: 45cm

Pot Width: 17cm

Care Instructions

The Calathea orbifolia is a bit more delicate than some houseplants, but with a little extra attention, you can keep this beauty thriving:

  • Light: Bright, indirect sunlight. Avoid harsh, direct sun which can scorch the leaves.
  • Water: Water consistently when the top inch of soil dries out. Don't let it sit in soggy soil, as this can lead to root rot. Use filtered or rainwater whenever possible to avoid brown leaf edges.
  • Humidity: Prefers moderate to high humidity. Regular misting, a pebble tray filled with water, or a humidifier are all helpful. Grouping your Calathea orbifolia with other humidity-loving plants can also create a beneficial microclimate.
  • Toxicity: Non-toxic to pets and humans.

Bellr Bonus Tip:

The Calathea orbifolia is a fast grower and may need to be repotted every 1-2 years to accommodate new growth.
