Calathea (The living plant)

As mentioned, the Calathea can be kept well in the house. This plant will color the house in places where other plants do not like to be.
In addition to the living room, of course, it fits perfectly in dark locations in the house, such as in the hall.

But what about the bathroom? The Calathea feels completely at home in this humid, low-light environment. And the bedroom? It is precisely here that you can see that the leaves close in the evening.

In the morning when the first light comes through the windows, the plant extends its leaves and unfolds again. In short, a plant that provides rhythm in many places in the house.

The Calathea is best served at temperatures between 15 and 23 degrees.

The Calathea is a shade loving plant and does not like sunlight.

Give the Calathea a splash of water twice a week.

The leaves of the Calathea are not edible.

The Marantaceae is a plant family that occurs in the subtropics, in particular the jungle of Brazil. The plants grow in the wild like shrubs, which can easily reach a height of a few meters. It is family of the banana plant. Among the native population, the Marantaceae family is also known for its nutritional value: the roots are edible. The large leaves of the plants lend themselves again to the roofing of huts. It is obvious that the Marantaceae also has a medical significance. The plant family owes its name to an Italian doctor, Maranti, who already wrote a standard work in the sixteenth century on the medical properties of flowers and plants.

The decorative leaf is characteristic of the Marantaceae. It is mainly the leaves that determine the attraction value of the plant. The cultivars have very different leaf colors and grain drawings. The colors range from silver, white-pink to various shades of green.
The most important genus of the Marantaceae family is the Calathea. There must be many dozens of varieties, but many species have not yet been discovered in the often impenetrable jungle. On average, 15 varieties are grown by our supplier. The range also changes regularly.

The living plant

The Calathea has a special feature: the leaves close when the amount of light decreases. The plant therefore has a day and night rhythm, which has earned it the nickname of 'living plant'. The closing of the leaves is also audible, with a rustling sound.


I ordered a number of plants which took about a week to arrive. The first thing that struck me was how well they were packaged, the plants are fastened securely with tape and elastic. Some smaller ones had come loose and were upside down in the box which led to some damage, but the 6 larger plants are all in perfect condition and excellent quality. Considering the delivery was €15 and I ordered 2 large boxes, I think it was excellent value. A stand out was the Philodendron royal queen, which is stunning. I’ll definitely be ordering from this site again.
