The foliage has cream-colored tones throughout the midrib of green leaves. The underside of the leaf is a deep purple which creates a beautiful contrast in the overall appearance of the plant.  Calatheas are part of a family of plants known as Marantaceae. They grow under the shade of tall tree canopies in the Brazilian rainforests, which defuse the intense direct sunlight to plants. Direct sunlight can burn the leaves or at least fade the lush green color of the foliage. Although they flower in their native environment, they are most noted for their wide, colorful leaves. The wide leaves make them a good choice for areas with low light. Calathea Misto is a photoperiodic plant. This means that it responds to light throughout the day and folds its leaves at night. Calatheas benefit from extra humidity and require moist soil.  See our Blog on the website on Tropical Plant Care for more plant care instructions.
