Calathea are a very popular houseplant due to their stunning leaf patterns and array of colours! They are fascinating to observe as their leaves open and close from day to night and you can sometimes see this in real time if you look carefully enough! Whilst calathea can be fussy, given the right conditions they can thrive and be really rewarding to watch grow.
