  • Calathea Ornata, or Pinstripe Prayer Plant, is a striking tropical plant. It has oval dark green leaves with gorgeous bright pink pinstripes. The underside of the leaves has a unique dark red-maroon color, making it one of the most colorful and beautiful members of the Calathea family.

    As a prayer plant, Ornata belongs to the Marantaceae family. It folds its leaves up during the night, which resembles praying hands. This plant is also great at purifying the indoor air and removing air pollutants. Ornata is rarer than most Calathea varieties.

    Calathea Ornata produces small orange flowers, packed around small inflorescence stems.

  • Pinstripe Prayer Plant tolerates different lighting conditions, including medium to low-light spots. Its ideal lighting is bright, indirect light but it can also grow in partial shade. Avoid harsh direct sunlight to prevent sunburn.

    This plant needs regular watering to keep its soil slightly moist. Check the soil twice a week and water when the first 2 inches of the top soil is dry.

    This plant needs well-drained, nutrient-rich soils that are able to retain some moisture. Choose a peat-rich potting mixture.

    This plant thrives in temperatures of 65°F-85°F and grows well in normal room conditions. It does not do well when the temperature drops below 50°F. Do not place this plant near venting systems or air-conditioners. This tropical plant needs a humidity level of at least 50%, so you should use a humidifier and mist your plant often when your indoor environment is dry.

    This plant should be fertilized once per month during the growing season (spring/summer) with diluted houseplant fertilizer. You can also feat this plant with a slow-release fertilizer once or twice per year.

    Ornata is considered non-toxic and safe for pets.

    Here is our blog about the shipping process and packaging:

    *** The size options are represtentative of pots that the plants come in. Sometimes customer may receive multiple plants instead of a large one to make up size.

    *** All of our packages are sterilized before leaving the door.
  • We only ship out beautiful, healthy plants! Please track your package and open it immediately upon arrival. If you receive your package and are not satisfied, please message us immediately. Fragile plants such as bearpaw, baby toe, etc. may break or loose a few of their leaves during transport. Please contact us for replacements if your plants are severely damaged. We'll try our best to accommodate you. Plants may be slightly larger or smaller than the pot they are grown in, depending on availability or time of year.
  • Provide porous soil with adequate drainage, pots with drainage hole are recommended. Bright, filtered light and ample airflow. Water thoroughly when soil is dry to the touch. Never let your succulents sit in water. Do NOT water on the leaves. If you water from beneath by letting the plant sit in a saucer of water, make sure to pour off any excess water after a few minutes. The hotter it is outside, the faster your soil will dry out, so you’ll need to water more often if you live in a hot area. Water with caution in winter, as the plant can lose its roots if the soil stays cold and wet for extended periods; protect from frost to prevent scarring.
