The Calathea genus contains some of the most recognisable houseplants, which can also be identified under the Geoppertia genus. These plants can be found natively across the tropical rainforests of South America.
Calathea are part of the Marantaceae family and are known for their ability to move their leaves depending on available light. This is known as nastic movement. Calatheas are a great pet-friendly houseplant option.

Thoroughly water, then allow the top 3 to 4cm of compost to dry before re-watering. Water less in winter when the plant is growing more slowly. Over-watering can cause root rot.
Feed every second time you water through spring and summer with a quality liquid plant food. There is no need to feed this plant in winter.
