Questions & Answers

Product Overview

Pinstripe Calathea is an extremely popular tropical house plant, native to the Amazon rainforest, whose stunning foliage makes it a stand-out in any garden, windowsill, or greenhouse. Its most striking and recognizable feature is its leaves, which combine deep purple undersides with a rich, dark green topside marked by delicate, bright pink “fish-bone” pinstripes. The Pinstripe Calathea is a little more challenging to care for than many other plants—for example, it likes its water room temperature and requires extra humidity to live its best life—but houseplant lovers agree almost universally that the extra effort is more than made up for by the plant’s incredible, tasteful beauty.
