If this is your first encounter with the Calathea Orbifolia houseplant, sit down and take a moment. Your life will be different from now: This stupendous looking plant will be with you for the rest of your life. It's subtle yet striking orbic patterning, on a light green, round leaf, is something to behold. It's the thing one wants to see first when walking in the front door.

If the pot size allows it, your Orbifolia will grow into a lush, full house plant that will continue to delight. Find a nice brightly lit spot at a level that the foliage can be appreciated from above. A high humidity area, such as your bathroom or kitchen would be ideal if you don't want to mist it often. 

CARE INSTRUCTIONS
Follow these instructions to keep your Calathea Orbifolia healthy and happy:

Water: Keep soil evenly moist but not waterlogged. 
Light: Medium to bright indirect light, consider rotating your plant to face the "light source" regularly for even distribution of growth.
