The leaves of the Calathea move by themselves. The plant closes its leaves in the evening to open them again in the morning. This can produce a rustling sound. As a result, the plant is also known as 'the living plant'. The Calathea is family of the Marantaceae. The plant comes from the jungles of South America and the Amazon. Naturally, the Calathea grows here in the shade. Furthermore, the Calathea is ideal to have in the house because it can convert contaminated substances into oxygen. This purifies the air in your home, ideal!
The Calathea Insignis is a houseplant that needs a relatively large amount of water. It is best to water the plant small amounts regularly. The Calathea prefers a slightly moist soil, but without forming a layer of water at the bottom of the pot. Due to its origins from the humid Amazon rainforest, it is important that the soil never dries out. Furthermore, the Calathea houseplant needs little light. Place the Calathea on a pitch with (half) shade without direct sunlight. Too much sunlight can be harmful to the plant and will lead to brown edges on the leaves. Finally, the Calathea is the right plant for people with pets or children since this plant is not toxic!
