The Calathea Sanderiana’s beautiful pinstripe, glossy leaves make this a hugely popular houseplant. It is also known as a prayer plant as it opens its leaves at sunrise and closes them at night. Native to Columbia and Venezuela, this plant enjoys humid environments and lots of light.
Care: The Calathea enjoys being in a sunny spot but not direct sunlight as this will cause the leaves to fade. It can tolerate some shade but if it is too dark the plant will struggle to thrive. Water as often as needed to keep the soil damp so check once a week and avoid overwatering. As this plant is used in humid environments, ensure to mist if needed or stand on a pebble tray.
