Calathea 'Red Rojo'
This interesting calathea has playful striped red leaves!
Calatheas are the most commonly found plant in the Maranta group, and are well known for their wide array of vibrant colors and patterns. They prefer to be kept moist, are very sensitive to humidity, and benefit from misting or grouping closely with other plants. They like strong indirect light and can tolerate some morning direct sun but can burn and dry out easily with stronger light conditions. While Calathea is still the most commonly used name for them, officially they are classed under the genus Goeppertia. They are a part of the Marantacae family which also includes marantas, stromanthes, and ctenanthes.
