The Calathea Green lipstick is the unassuming sibling of the Calathea Family, however, it can hold its own with gorgeously deep green foliage with delicately brush-stroked patterning, making it a truly eye-catching specimen in its own right. Like all Calathea these fascinating plants are super noteworthy and a fabulous statement plant.

They love high humidity and medium to bright filtered light to thrive as well as consistently moist soil that doesn't stay soggy nor dries out. So be prepared, they can bit a touch diva-ish if not treated with attention.

Calathea houseplants make for fabulous accent pieces in a brightly lit bathroom or kitchen where humidity is naturally higher, though will happily live in any general living space as long as humidity is provided to them, achieve this by placing your plant on a pebble tray. 

Pair this subtle beauty with a sleek modern planter for something sleek and use it as a tabletop feature or bookshelf stunner. Whichever spot you choose, these plants will captivate you.

Please note: Calathea are safe for children and pets, but prefer not to be eaten as it'll make them look less than the best.
