Lazy days

The Calathea Burle Marxe is pretty laid back and loves showing off his flamboyant leaves. Their underside is painted burgundy velvet, while the tops dazzle in silver snake-skin. Carl makes a striking statement in any room.

Comes in a 14cm plastic grow pot. Decorative pot sold separately 

Flat shipping rates apply per order (add more plants & pay the same on shipping). Gauteng R79. Rest of South Africa R119 (Except Limpopo, Mpumalanga & Northern Cape R149).

Caring for Carl

Light

Medium to bright. Tolerates lower light conditions

Water & humidity

Water twice a week, keeping the soil moist but not soggy. Calatheas are susceptible to root rot, so don't let water sit in the tray. Mist leaves regularly for best results.

Feeding

Once a month with a sachet of our Canola Meal

Re-potting

Every two years in spring. Calatheas don't like to be pot bound, but to have plenty of room.

Atrium Top Tip

If the leaf starts curling it means lack of water. Brown edges mean lack of humidity.

Quirky plant fact

Calatheas are known as prayer plants because at night they close their leaves as if in prayer. They originate from deep in the Amazon jungle.
