Information on plant sizes
All plants are measured from the bottom of the nursery pot to the tip of the plant and if a height is specified, this is an approximate height, not set in stone. As all plants are living things, they will vary in size throughout the year, and we do our best to give a guide as to the size you can expect. If in doubt drop us an email email@example.com.
With its enchanting foliage and unique characteristics, this tropical beauty is a must-have addition to any indoor garden. At Leaf Culture, we take pride in offering this exquisite plant to our discerning customers across the United Kingdom.
Calathea Warscewiczii, commonly known as the "Velvet Calathea" or "Jungle Velvet," boasts large, elongated leaves with a velvety texture that feels as luxurious as it looks. The deep green leaves showcase intricate patterns of silver veins, reminiscent of delicate lacework, adding a touch of elegance to any space. As the evening sets in, the leaves fold together, revealing a vibrant purple under surface, creating a dramatic display.
This Calathea variety is native to the rain forests of Brazil, where it thrives in the shade of the lush canopy. To replicate its natural habitat, place the plant in a well-lit area away from direct sunlight. With its moderate growth rate, the Warscewiczii reaches a manageable size of around 100cm, making it an ideal choice for both larger rooms and flats.
As a member of the Marantaceae family, the Calathea Warscewiczii enjoys a humid environment. Mist the leaves regularly or place a tray filled with water nearby to enhance the moisture levels. This will help maintain the plant's vibrant foliage and prevent leaf curling, which is a characteristic response to dry conditions.
