Calathea, which are commonly referred to as a "Prayer Plant", is a genus of flowering plants in the family Marantaceae. Most Calathea species will fold their leaves up at night, similar to praying hands.
Calathea are collected and prized for their uniquely patterned foliage. You'll find all types of colorful foliage within this genus, from bright pink neon to deep red to yellow and white -- Calathea has it all!
Calathea do flower, but they tend to not be very showy or colorful.
You'll find that your Calathea will be happiest with above average humidity and medium to bright indirect light. They prefer a well draining soil rich in organic matter that drains easily. Make sure your Calathea does not completely dry out as they prefer to stay on the moist side.
Recently, up to 200 former Calathea species were reclassified into the genus Goeppertia.
