The Calathea orbifolia is a prayer plant with very large, medallion shaped leaves and striking variegation. Like other prayer plants, the leaves will move slightly throughout the day.
Orbifolia does does not like direct sun as its leaves can burn quite easily. Bright, but indirect, light is best, and high humidity will also be appreciated. Avoid cold drafts and radiators as this will lower the humidity. During the growing season, water Orbifolia when the top inch of the compost is dry to the touch - just enough to get it damp again. Get these conditions right and it will reward you with plenty of beautiful new leaves!
Do not pot directly into our decorative pots. It's much better to keep your plant in its nursery pot to allow adequate drainage.
