So-called Furry Feather or Velvet Calathea due to the tiny hairs that cover its waxy leaves and stems and give the plant a soft, velvety feel. Calathea rufibarba is a tall Calathea variety with red-tinged stems and deep luscious green, elongated leaves. Tropical indoor flair for all living spaces!

Horty Hints

A family resemblance! Like many other Calathea, this one also likes warm, humid environments. Try to keep away from cold windows, or locations with lots of passing traffic. Brown leaf tips are common.

Living on the edge! Crisping up at the edges of leaves is a watering issue not humidity. This plant is sensitive to chlorine in tap water, so allow it to stand overnight to diffuse before use, and maintain an even moist soil.

Centre of attention! Calathea need plenty of attention to look their best, particularly when it comes to humidity and watering. Check in with your plant frequently as negative changes can happen quickly.
