Calatheas are popular houseplants owing to their striking foliage. The Calathea Rufibarba may be pretty plain by Calathea standards but what it might lack in looks it makes up for in texture. Tiny hairs on the undersides of the leaves make them soft and velvety to the touch, giving rise to its common names. The long, feather-shaped leaves are green on top and maroon underneath – a lovely colour combination.
Care: Bright, indirect light; water little but often; fertilise every two months.
